Miss Liebrich at Maplemere Elementary

Hello! My name is Kimberly Liebrich, and I am the Universal Pre-Kindergarten teacher at Maplemere Elementary School in conjunction with Four Season Family Childcare.  I have been married to my husband Eric for 30 years, and have two wonderful children!  My daughter Ashley (27 yrs.) and my son Garrett (18 yrs). Hobbies that I enjoy are knitting, reading, spending time with my family, friends, playing with our dogs.

          I currently hold my Bachelors degree in early childhood education (Birth -2nd) and my Masters degree in childhood education (1st-6th).  This will be my 14th year teaching pre-kindergarten students, and it is an absolute joy to come in everyday and teach this age group! I always say that one never should stop learning—and I do learn so much from working with pre-kindergarten kids. We work hard, but have so much fun together; it is my hope that I give all of my students’ a strong school foundation and a genuine love for learning!

Ms. Snell at Heritage Heights Elementary

My name is Lindsay Goulette and I am the Pre-K teacher at Willowridge Elementary.  I have my Bachelors Degree in Early Childhood and Childhood Education from Canisius College. Currently, I am finishing my Masters Degree in Early Childhood Literacy from the University at Buffalo. Prior to teaching Pre-K i had taught Kindergarten for two years.  When I got the opportunity to teach Pre-K I was very excited.  I am very happy teaching at Willowridge Elementary in conjunction with Four Seasons Childcare.  I love my job and working with Pre-K students is an adventure and a joy.  My goal as your child's Pre-K teacher is to provide a safe and happy environment in which each individual student can learn and develop at a comfortable pace but to their full ability.  Students need to be engaged and motivated, and I believe in providing them with the skills, motivation and passion needed to transform them into life long learners.  In my spare time I enjoy scrapbooking, photography, reading and outdoor activities.  I love to spend time with my husband and our family.
