Hello Stingrays! My name is Karen Liebert-German. I am in my 18th year teaching. I taught 1st grade for 5 years. Currently, for 13 years, I have been a Reading Recovery and Intervention teacher. I work with students who have difficulty with reading and need instruction that is more specialized. I love to watch my students discover the joys of reading. My focus is teaching strategies to become readers.
When I went to Lindsey Wilson College, I double majored in Accounting and Elementary Education. My heart and passion has always been with elementary aged students. I believe in continued learning so I received my Masters of Education, through the University of Louisville, as a Literacy Specialist, with an emphasis in reading and writing. I am a National Board Certified Teacher in the area of Literacy.
My husband and I love spending time with our sons, Kaleb and Kipp. I grew up with only sisters so I am learning the world of Star Wars, Power Rangers and the Ninja Turtles. My family means the world to me. In my free time, I love to read, swim and be outdoors. As a family, we spend lots of time at the zoo and playing together.
I am looking forward to a great year!
