Hi, I'm Mrs. Leban, and I teach Creative Technology classes at Sandburg Middle School. Previously, I was an art teacher - for 13 years! So art + technology = my jam. I'm also the department chair for the Creative Technology department.

I student taught right here at Sandburg Middle School in 2001. I earned my BA from Elmhurst College in December of 2001. I earned my MA in 2005 from St. Xavier University. In 2010, I earned National Board Teacher Certification in Early Adolescent-Young Adult Art.

In 2014, I earned my Technology Specialist Endorsement and my Computer Applications endorsement from University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. I am a Google Certified Educator (Level 2), an Apple Teacher, and an education ambassador for WeVideo. Using green screen/color keying in creative ways is one of my favorite things to do!

In summer 2018, I was accepted into the Google Certified Innovator #LAX18 cohort, and in October 2018, I earned my Google Certified Trainer badge! My Innovator project is called ResetEDU, which is a YouTube channel where I help teachers get excited about and find fun in teaching!

I'm married to Mr. Leban, who is an art teacher in Oak Park at Gwendolyn Brooks Middle School. We have a little boy named Iggy, and two dogs, named Motorhead and Dio.

I play roller derby and like to roller skate all the time. I even know how to ramp skate and roller dance! I also enjoy going to concerts, cooking new recipes, DIY projects, making art of all kinds, and spending time with my son and husband.

You can also find me on Twitter and Instagram.
