Mrs. Elizabeth Witcpalek
Hello Southbury friends and families! I have been teaching in School District 308 for 14 years. I obtained a Bachelor`s degree in education from Aurora University and have obtained a Masters of Science in Instructional Technology from Northern Illinois University. For two years, I taught second grade at Lakewood Creek Elementary and for the last 12 years I have been teaching research skills, information literacy and social responsibility in the LRC at Southbury and other elementary schools in District 308.
As the Library Media Specialist at Southbury Elementary, I feel very fortunate to have the opportunity to instill a life-long love of reading in students of several ages. Each time a student walks through the doors of the LRC, it is my goal to help guide them to success in finding the tools they need to reach their own personal and academic goals.
