Ms. Liberman's Biography

Hi! My name is Jennifer Liberman and this will be my first year at Decatur and my third year teaching! I grew up on the north side of Chicago, attended Western Michigan for my undergraduate, and then I came back to Chicago and got my masters in Early Childhood Education from Erikson Institute.
Creating a fun and welcoming learning environment is my passion. I believe that when students feel comfortable and engaged, they can thrive academically and socially. I strive to make each day in the classroom exciting! As an educator, I deeply care about the whole student. Building strong relationships with my students and families is a priority for me.
Outside of school, I love reading and engaging in sports. Whether it's cheering on the Bears or actively participating, sports have always been a big part of my life. Reading allows me to unwind and explore different worlds, and I encourage my students to develop a love for books as well.
I am thrilled to be joining the Decatur community! Feel free to reach out if you have any questions or if there's anything else you'd like to know!


Student's chose "just right" books to read during independent reading time. A "just right" book is a book that is not too easy to read, not too difficult,  but JUST RIGHT!
