Meet Our Principal, Mr. Brian Lieberman Teacher Website

Brian LiebermanAs principal at Sanford Elementary it is my goal to ensure the success of each child so that they maximize their potential to be college, career and citizen ready.

Our job as educators is to provide a rich learning environment for students so they are exposed to a wide variety of books. Sanford is a school of book pushers as we encourage students to find books that speak to them and to read as much as possible. We have built a culture that encourages students to read and to talk about the books they are reading.

Students are also provided opportunities to solve problems and think critically. Sanford provides opportunities for students to express their creativity through our instruction in the arts. And, our students take on projects that help them understand the importance of being socially responsible in their community.

I make it my personal mission to make sure each student feels safe, secure, and welcome in the building. Every child has strengths, and it is our job as educators to build upon those strengths and provide an environment to foster continuous growth in children. Sanford students are part of a caring community of learners. The staff at Sanford spends a great deal of time building classroom and school wide community so that students interact with each other respectfully.

I consider myself a lifelong learner. I am constantly looking to grow personally and professionally. I believe that we are best able to educate each child when we work in partnership with families. Family members are the strongest advocates for their child, and I encourage all of the families of the Sanford community to be active participants in your child's educational experiences. You will find me each morning greeting students and you are more than welcome to visit me in the Sanford office.
