Mr. Laliberte' - Junior and Senior English

About Me:
My name is Robert Cyril Laliberte' III, and I was born in Bartlesville, Oklahoma. I have lived in Oklahoma, Texas, Montana, and Arizona.  I have lived in San Tan Valley for most of my life, and I love this community and the Valley of the Sun.  I enjoy reading, playing board games, and eating all types of food.  I have an older sister, Jennifer, and two younger brothers, Joshua and Connor.  Jennifer is a Marine Environmental Manager, Joshua is an Executive Chef, and Connor is studying to be a Veterinarian.  I live every day of my life to serve the future of our Valley and Nation, and it is my goal to make every one of my students successful.    
Educational Background and Experience:
Combs Middle School ('98)
Seton Catholic High School ('02)
Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education from Arizona State University ('06)
Masters of Education in Educational Leadership and Admin from Capella University ('10)
I started my career as a 5th-grade long-term substitute, and have taught in the Combs District for 16 years.
I have taught 6th, 7th, and 8th grade Language Arts, 9th, 10th, 11th, and 12th grade English, Speech and Debate, Psychology, and Sociology.  I am highly qualified in English and hold an Administrative Certification.  I am currently working on my Doctorate in Curriculum and Instruction.
Educational Philosophy:
I believe that the best way to teach is to allow the student to master the standards through choices given to enhance the learning process.  Tracking Data, offering a Road map of learning, and having students unpack Standards is the best way to allow students to learn through a self-paced and analytical approach to education. The Combs School District is proud to offer the Modern Teacher method of teaching offering Personalized, Blended, and Competency-Based learning through advocation of student choice in learning and clearly developed road maps to learning, through a 21st century technologically based classroom that extends to the world and to the home, and through data-driven and standards mastery-based instruction that provides help through the student-centered, road map planned, educational journey.
To Learn Is To Go Beyond Knowing.
