Greetings! Welcome to the Liberty Elementary website.

My name is Melissa Wolken and I am the new assistant principal of Liberty Elementary, home of the Superstars! 

Since the doors opened in 2002, the faculty and staff at Liberty 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 partner in meaningful ways with families and our community to help our students grow academically, socially, and emotionally. Please feel free to stop in anytime, the door is always open for positive collaboration!

A bit about me…

This is my 16th year in education.  I taught for 9 years at Castelar Elementary as an EL teacher, as well as 2nd and 3rd grade Dual Language Spanish teacher. I went on to serve as the Dual Language/EL Lead Teacher at Gomez Heritage Elementary for 4 years.  After that, I worked for the Buffett Early Childhood Institute as an Educational Facilitator, working closely with 10 schools across 6 districts. I'm excited to join the Liberty family and serve as a leader to such an amazing community!
