Welcome to First Grade!

          Hello!  My name is Phyllis Lieb and I am the First Grade Teacher here at St. Catherine of Siena School.  This is my sixth year as a First Grade Teacher at St. Catherine, and this is my sixteenth year of teaching.  Teaching is my second career and I absolutely love it!  I possess a teaching credential and master's degree in Special Education from Azusa Pacific University.  I have taught all elementary grade levels in LAUSD; I also taught middle school levels at a local charter school.  St. Catherine of Siena School is a beautiful school community of learners!


          One of my favorite things about teaching first grade is discovering, along with my students, how they learn best.  It is fun to see them get excited when they understand a new concept or process.  Through the year, the students discover the subjects they are good at and they feel so good about themselves!  First graders also fall in love with reading and they find the books they really like.  First grade is a "discovery year" as they learn how to be a good student.  Ipads are an awesome tool to help in their understanding of a concept and to begin to explore animals and planets.  Please visit us...we would love to share our school community with you!
