Biography

Hi my name Libby Green. This will be my fourth year working for DMPS, but first year at Hubbell. Previous to coming to Hubbell,  I taught first grade at Edmunds Elementary for three years. I was a substitute teacher earlier on while mainly staying home with my kiddos.  I am very excited to start a new journey at Hubbell and look forward to meeting lots of new smiling faces eager to learn! I am starting my Masters at Drake in January, so lots of exciting changes.

Biography

Welcome to first grade! I graduated from the University of Northern Iowa with a double major in Elementary Education and Remedial Reading and a minor in Math. I began teaching small group remedial reading and math in Des Moines but most of my years have been spent teaching in a first or second grade classroom. I have taught at five different schools in Des Moines over my career but the longest stretch has been here at Hubbell. I job shared with a friend for many years while my husband and I were raising our children and have been full time for several years now. I am looking forward to working as a team to ensure the success of your child.
