Grades 7-8 Science Teacher, Accreditation Coordinator

EC Start Date: 1998

Education: B.S. - Psychology & Education, William Paterson University
M.S.Ed. - Educational Leadership, University of New England

Bio:

Liesl is wife to Paterson Police Detective Rick Botbyl and Mother of Greta and Elizabeth (and even dog Bosco). When telling people her career of choice there is always a cringe-like reaction greeted by Liesl’s “but I wouldn’t want to spend my day with anyone else!” She loves dreaming about what is going to help our students be better learners and even better keepers of God’s world. The next best thing to teaching would be anything involving reading, baking, and being outdoors enjoying nature.
