About Ms. Lübbers
I started working in the art department of the PCSD in 1998. I taught six years at Sutherland High School and since then have been the art teacher at Thornell Road Elementary School. In 2009/2010 I also taught a semester class in ceramics at Sutherland High School. During the first semester of 2010/2011 I taught a class in ceramics at Mendon High School and in 2011/12 a class in contemporary crafts. During 2012/13 I taught 8th graders at Barker Road Middle School and during 2013/14 I taught twice a week at Mendon Center Elementary four 1st grade classes and one 4th grade class.
I grew up in Dortmund, Germany. After high school I studied to become a nurse with the German Red Cross in Marburg and later worked as a nurse in Hamburg.
In 1989 I moved to Rochester, NY. I had a student visa and after studying at SUNY Brockport received a BA in Art. I went to the University of Buffalo to get an MA in Art History. Later on I received a Teaching Certificate in Art from Nazareth College. I also have a Certificate in Creativity and Change Leadership from the International Center of Studies in Creativity at Buffalo State College. At this point I have studied mindfulness for over a year and am part of a collegial circle during the school year 2014/15.
In 2001 I became a United States of America citizen.
