Hi, I'm Mrs. Leban. I teach computer literacy/technology classes at Sandburg Middle School (I started in 2015-16). Before teaching technology, I was the art teacher here at Sandburg for 13 years. Geez, that's a long time.
I student taught right here at Sandburg Middle School in 2001. I earned my BA from Elmhurst College in December of 2001. I earned my MA in 2005 from St. Xavier University. In 2010, I earned National Board Teacher Certification in Early Adolescent-Young Adult Art.
I really like computers. In 2014-15, I earned my Technology Specialist Endorsement and my Computer Applications endorsement from University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. I am a Google Certified Educator (Level 2), an Apple Teacher, and an education ambassador for WeVideo.
I'm married to Mr. Leban, who is an art teacher in Oak Park at Gwendolyn Brooks Middle School. We have a little boy named Iggy, and two dogs, named Motorhead and Dio.
I play roller derby, and if you ask me, I will talk your ear off about it! I also enjoy going to concerts, cooking new recipes, DIY projects, making art of all kinds, and spending time with my son and husband.
