Hello - I'm Mrs. Leban. I teach art at Sandburg Middle School, and I've been here since I first started teaching in August of 2002! Sheesh, 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. Over the summer, I completed a bunch of tests to become a Google Certified Educator. This year, I'm back in grad school, earning my Technology Specialist Endorsement!
I'm married to Mr. Leban, also an art teacher, in Oak Park! We have a little boy named Iggy, and two dogs, named Motorhead and Dio.
I enjoy going to concerts, roller derby skating, cooking new recipes, DIY projects, working on the computer, and spending time with my son and husband!
