Margaret Leon


Big Cypress Education Department

Hello, my name is Margaret Leon, but you can just call me Maggie. I'm very excited to be joining the Education Department. I had the honor of working at Ahfachkee School. I've liked watching the kids grow and making connections with them. I was born and raised in South Florida, although my family is originally from Colombia. I spend the majority of my time in Florida and Colombia, and I speak Spanish extremely well.

Since high school, I've been working in Broward County Public Schools as an aftercare counselor and a teacher assistant (Supported K, ASD cluster, Pre-K intense). My interest in working with children with impairments evolved over time. I had the pleasure of working at Jafco Ability Center for approximately 4 years and at the YMCA of South Florida with children with disabilities for 5 years. I recently obtained my A.S. in Early Childhood Education. During this period, I am attending FGCU (Florida Gulf Coast University) to pursue a Bachelor’s degree in Communications with a focus on public relations. Favorite Quotes: “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world” – Nelson Mandela Hobbles: Traveling, spending time with friends and family, and going to the beach.
