Welcome to Kindergarten! My name is Katie Kibbe (aka Ms. Katie) and I will be teaching Kindergarten for the 2022-2023 school year. This is my 2nd year teaching at LVA, and I LOVE it! This school is a special place to be, and I am so thankful that I get to be a part of your child’s educational experience here!
My own education has been in progress during all my adult life. I began my education at the University of Texas, Austin in the field of Psychology. I then spent some time in the school of life working until I met my husband, John. We married 25 years ago and have lived in Livermore for the last 23. I returned to school to study Early Childhood Education at the University of the Pacific but was not able to be in the classroom until last year! I began teaching Transitional Kindergarten here at Livermore Valley Academy and I am thrilled to take on the challenge of kindergarten this year!
When I am not at school you can find me caring for my many pets, hanging out with my family, spending time outdoors or crafting. I enjoy knitting, crochet, Tunisian crochet and sewing, among other things. Recently I started painting and I have loved spending time making whimsical and colorful paintings. Feel free to reach out if you have any questions Kkibbe@mylva.org!
