YORK -- If there's one thing Leslie Templeton enjoys more than creating art, it's creating a passion for it in her students.
For the past 13 years, she's done that for students in York County.
"She is a talented artist who enjoys sharing her skills to help others," said York Comprehensive High School Principal Diane Howell. "Mrs. Templeton gives of her time freely to work with students individually before and after school."
For that commitment, Templeton was named York School District Teacher of the Year.
She took some time to share her love for art and teaching. Responses have been edited for brevity:
