Hello Live Oak,
It is a thrill for me to be a part of the Live Oak Elementary Staff. Starting our

eighth year as a school and continuing our progression as a community together gives me the satisfaction of knowing that I am part of something special. I have dedicated myself to becoming a lifelong learner and it will be an honor for me to work with the students and staff of Live Oak Elementary to engrain that in our community as well. Before becoming a teacher at Live Oak, I earned my teaching credential at California State University, East Bay. I received my Bachelor¹s Degree in Sociology with a minor in Education at the University of California, Santa Barbara (Go Gauchos!). I also have a Master¹s in Technology in Education from Lesley University. In addition to teaching, I enjoy all different types of sports. Currently I play on a softball team and basketball team. My wife and I have a 1 year old daughter named Daphne and she is the absolute joy in our lives.  We love going on hikes with our dog, Opie, and taking many day trips all over the bay area.  I look forward to getting to know you all better throughout the school year.

I feel so fortunate to work with the Live Oak community.  I am thrilled to be a part of a staff and community that are so involved and enthusiastic about learning.

I graduated from CSU Hayward with my teaching credential and Masters in Education. I have taught kindergarten through third grade. I was born and raised in Pleasanton and currently live in Dublin with my husband and daughter, Kylie.  I strive to ensure that all students are successful and challenged academically. In my classroom, each school day will be engaging and enriching experience filled with new learning and new friendships!

I look forward to exciting and fun school year!

Hello!  My name is Kimi Noltensmeier and I am ecstatic to be part of such an AMAZING community at Live Oak Elementary as a third grade teacher.

I am excited to be teaching another year of third grade at Live Oak Elementary with such an amazing and caring team of teachers. Third grade is a wonderful year of growth and learning and I strive to bring out the best in each of my students.     

I was born and raised in San Francisco and my husband, children and I have lived in the San Ramon Valley for over twenty years. I am looking forward to a successful and challenging year for all of my students.

I am thrilled to be part of the third grade team here at Live Oak Elementary...GO GOLDEN EAGLES! It is so exciting to have the opportunity to work with a dedicated and enthusiastic staff in such a supportive
community. I know it is going to be a wonderful year for teacher, students and parents alike!

I earned my teaching credential from CSU Hayward, and I have taught grades K-2 for the past 17 years in the Bay Area. One of the reasons I chose to teach was to share the joy I have for learning with my students, and help them become independent decision makers and confident problem solvers.
I live in San Ramon with my husband, and two children. My son will enter Dougherty Valley High School as a 11th grader this year...GO WILDCATS!  He enjoys anything to do with basketball, baseball and
football. My daughter will begin 8th grade this year at Windemere Ranch Middle School...GO FALCONS!  She also enjoys playing basketball and folk dancing, and is enthralled with the world of fashion and music.  Together, we enjoy hiking, bicycling, and curling up on the couch to watch movies.
