    Hello!  My name is Jodi Pelak Massack and I am excited about being in 5th grade for the 2023-2024 school year.   
    I am originally from the great state of Michigan.  Ever since I was little, I've known I wanted to teach.  I graduated with a degree in Elementary Education from Valparaiso University and attended Shenandoah University for my masters. I spent my first 6 years teaching in DC Public Schools where I taught both 3rd and 4th grade.  I love that I've been at Liberty ES since we opened in the fall of 2008 and am excited to see what year 16 brings.  Throughout those years, I have moved back and forth between 4th and 5th grade.   Throughout the school year, I seek to create a positive learning environment for my students.  I love building relationships with my students and helping them gain confidence before they head off to middle school.
    When I'm not teaching, I love spending my time with my husband, John and kids, Madison and John.
    I am looking forward to an awesome school year with my 5th graders!
