SOK8 English 7 & 8 + Yearbook!
Hi! Trying something new this year to help with organization and tracking down information! That something new is this webpage!
To the left <---- is a list of links to help navigate the site.
To the right ----> are important announcement and calendar items!
And, for those that don't know me yet, here's some info:
My last name is pronounced Lie-bee! Lie-bee, Lie-bee, Lie-bee! My classroom runs on love, laughter, & lots of Starbucks (usually Toffee Nut White Mochas)! I ♥ Disney, Disneyland, Disneyworld - all things Disney! I ♥ the Boston Red Sox and the New England Patriots (red & blue)! I ♥ Reading (especially YA)! I believe organization, goal setting, and progress monitoring are essential tools for creating self-motivated students that are advocates for themselves! Hard work and perseverance are just as, or maybe even more, important than intelligence - working hard results in best performance and deserves to be recognized! I ♥ learning as much as I ♥ teaching and am always looking for new ways to motivate and educate my students! I enjoy visiting colleges and universities and collect pennants that I hang in my classroom! This is my 15th year teaching and my 8th year at SOK8! I received my Bachelors degree from California State University, Northridge. My teaching credential and Masters degree came from Chapman University. I am an A3WP Teacher Consultant for the National Writing Project. Hmm, what else . . .
Oh! I am married! Hence the MRS.! Mr. Liby is a Senior Master Sergeant in the Air National Guard. He has been deployed several times and I am a proud military spouse!
We have fur kids (I call them my "grrls") - two miniature dachshunds and a kitty!
And then there are my three nieces! I love them to pieces and spoil them a little too much!
