Degrees and Certifications:
My name is Shelby Leib and I am so excited to be your child’s teacher this year! This is my second year teaching and I am so happy to be a part of the Countryside community! When I moved back to Virginia after 4 years of college in Indiana, I became a LCPS substitute teacher and then finished up the 2019-2020 school year as a long-term 2nd grade substitute here at Countryside. The staff and students here are so kind and welcoming, you have definitely found yourself in the right place!
I grew up here in Sterling and went to Potowmack Elementary and River Bend Middle School before going to a private high school. I then graduated from Saint Mary’s College in Notre Dame, Indiana in May 2019 with a Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education and a double minor in Early Childhood Education and American History. While at Saint Mary’s, I worked for recruiting for the University of Notre Dame Football team which was a dream come true experience (Go Irish!)
In my free time, I love to spend time with my family and go to our beach house in Delaware in the summer, and curl up by a fire and spend time together in the winter. I also love to watch movies (especially Disney movies), bake, draw, travel, read, and watch Notre Dame football!
I believe that our classroom should be a kind, open, and welcoming environment for everyone.
I would like to really stress the importance of our parent-teacher relationship and how it is vital in helping your child to be as successful as possible. If you have any questions, comments, or concerns, please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I am so excited for this upcoming school year!
Welcome to Kindergarten!
