Mrs. Light

Hello! My name is Libby Light. This is my first year teaching at Franzen and I am thrilled to be part of District 10! While I am new to Itasca, I am not new to teaching. For the last nine years, I taught first grade in Chicago. I moved to the suburbs a couple of years ago and wanted a job closer to home. I am so happy to have found a place at Franzen Intermediate School.

I earned my Bachelor of Arts degree in Elementary Education from Saint Mary's College and my Masters of Education in Curriculum Studies from DePaul University. On the weekends I enjoy spending time with my husband, our son, and our dog. We are often playing bags in our backyard, walking around our neighborhood, or shopping at Costco! I also love to read, play word games, and travel. 

I strive to build positive, meaningful relationships with my students. In doing so, my classroom becomes a safe space to ask questions, engage in discussions, and make fascinating discoveries.  I am so excited for a wonderful year in third grade!
