Meet Mrs. Skibinski

Dear Families,

I would like to extend to each of you a warm welcome to fourth grade! I am looking forward to a wonderful year filled with learning, laughter and fun!

My name is Janice Skibinski and I have been a teacher for Livonia Public Schools for over 20 years. I have taught every grade level from Kindergarten through sixth, with the exception of fifth. I am a graduate of Eastern Michigan University, where I received both my Bachelor's and Master's degrees, as well as a state endorsement in Early Childhood Education.

My husband and I are very fortunate to have three fabulous children of our own, who also attended Livonia Public Schools. Our daughter Nicole is a senior at CMU this year. Our son Matthew attends Miami of Ohio and is a member of their football team.  Our youngest, David, is entering eighth grade at Frost. We also have one adorable little dog named Chloe. They all keep me incredibly busy!!

When I do have a few moments to myself (which isn't very often) I enjoy nature, spending time with my family, reading, walking (especially on nature trails) and photography.

I believe communication between home and school is vital to having a successful school year.  I am asking each family to send me a quick email so that I am able to set up an email group for important classroom information. My email address is: jskibins@livoniapublicschools.org.  Please put your child's first and last name in the subject line.  If your child's last name is different from yours, please include your full name in the body of the email.  If you do not have access to a computer or the internet, please let me know as soon as possible so I can make sure you receive all of the information you need to help your child be successful this year. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you ever have any questions or concerns. My classroom phone is not very reliable so please do NOT leave a message on my voice mail. The best way to reach me is through email or a note in your child's planner.

I feel very fortunate to be working with your children this year. I am excited about making this year both meaningful and memorable for the students

Yours truly,

Mrs. Skibinski
I love my fourth graders
