  • This teacher teaches in the lower building.
  • This teacher likes music and plays piano, guitar, and bass.
  • This teacher’s favorite color is blue.
  • This teacher likes teaching because he/she likes seeing children being curious about the world.
  • This teacher got interested in teaching because his/her teachers meant a lot to him/her, so he/she wanted to do the same thing for others.

Can you guess who this teacher is? Look for the answer on the bulletin board by the office!

Did you know that one of our school staff members has been connected to Montclair for 30 years? This article has interesting facts about some of our staff.

Let’s start with some fourth grade teachers:

  • Ms. Livsey was part of two dance companies. She also has two sons.
  • Ms. Chanter grew up in North Carolina and worked at a bookstore. She has two cats.

Now for a third grade teacher:

  • Ms. Nibblett grew up in Concord and makes stained glass from scratch for fun.

Now let’s take a look at some of our staff:

  • Ms. Irene grew up in Southern California. She has worked in the office for 17 years!
  • Ms. Hammond has a 25-year-old daughter and loves to paint.

We hope you learned some new things about Montclair Elementary School’s teachers and staff.
