Barbara Karsbaek - 3rd Grade Teacher, Liberty Elementary School

Barbara came to U-46 more than 16 years ago from a private school job. Coming to Liberty Elementary, where she teaches 3 rd grade, was “the best decision I ever made,” Barbara said. “The staff and admin have always been so supportive. Everyone's focus is always on how to provide the best learning
environment for the students,” she said. Her retirement priorities, Barbara said, will now be biking, traveling, gardening and playing with her grandkids.
