Greetings! Welcome to the Liberty Elementary website.
My name is Jeff Rotherham and I am the assistant principal
of Liberty Elementary, home of the Superstars! I am proud to say I have been at Liberty from day one.
Since our doors opened in
2002, the faculty and staff have fostered a community of safe,
thoughtful and determined students. All
members of our school community are committed to encouraging and challenging
our students through rigorous academic programming. In addition, our strong community partnerships have facilitated many
‘out of classroom' activities for our students, which have been beneficial in
connecting real-life experiences to the curriculum. It is through these
experiences that we are shaping and empowering students to be good citizens in
a global society.
We are continuously striving
to grow our parent and community support systems to help our students grow
academically, socially, and emotionally; You are invited to join us in making that happen for our
future.Please feel free to stop in anytime, the door is always
open for positive collaboration!
A bit about me…
This is my 27th year with the Omaha Public
Schools. I spent 12 years as a vocal music teacher in various schools and grade
levels ranging from early childhood through 8th grade. I switched to
teaching technology in 2005 and have loved every bit of my teaching career.
I’ve learned something from every experience and it has made me the person I am
I hold a Bachelor of Music Education (vocal/instrumental
K-12) from the University of Nebraska at Lincoln; a Masters in Education
Administration and Supervision from the University of Nebraska at Omaha; a
Masters in Curriculum and Instruction with an emphasis in technology from Peru
State College; and an endorsement in English as a Second Language from
I’m married to a middle school counselor and have 3 fur children; a great dane (Lyric), a great dane mix (Lucy) and a black lab mix (Luna) - all rescues.
My wife and I also love riding our Harley-Davidson motorcycles every chance we get!
