I'm Mr. Leeper, a fifth grade teacher at Maroa-Forsyth Grade School. This is my seventh year in education, and it is my second year teaching fifth grade. I have previously taught fourth grade and second grade. I was born and raised on our family farm in Decatur, Illinois, and I graduated from Sangamon Valley High School in Niantic. Then, I graduated from Millikin University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education and a minor in History. Currently, I am finishing my Master's degree in Education from the University of Illinois at Springfield. I live in Decatur with my wife, Lori, and our son, Joshua. We are also expecting a new baby in September! We enjoy spending time with our family and friends, serving in our church, and traveling. Our favorite place to travel is Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida. I am looking forward to another great year at Maroa-Forsyth Grade School! Go Trojans!
