Karen Liebentritt


    Educational Background:  I received my B.S. in Education from Miami University.  I have a Master’s Degree in Reading as well. 

    Experience: This is my 11th year of teaching.  I began my teaching career as a Kindergarten Teacher.  Then I taught First Grade and was a Reading Recovery Teacher.  I have spent the last 4 years as a Literacy Interventionist in the Adams 12 School District.  I am so excited  to begin my first year here at Lafayette Elementary as a LLI Teacher.

    Hobbies & personal interests:  When I’m not working, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends.  My husband, Matt, and I have three sons.  I love watching my kids play sports and going to all of their various activities.  I also love running, listening to music, going to the movies, and reading.  

    What do you enjoy most about teaching?  I absolutely love the primary grades because you get to see the excitement in children’s eyes when they begin to read and write.  My passion is to teach students how to be confident, successful readers and to instill a love of reading in everyone.
