Mrs. Norris


Welcome to the San Ramon Valley Early Childhood Education Program. My name is Marissa Smith

and I have been teaching primary grades since 1999.  I graduated from UC Berkeley with my bachelor’s

degree and continued on to finish my master’s degree and multiple subject teaching credential. I have worked

in several different districts in Northern and Southern California, but I have been working in San Ramon since 2006.


I worked at Hidden Hills Elementary School and at the district level as an Intervention Instructional Coach and Reading

Recovery Teacher for the last three years. Teaching reading is my passion so I continue to teach reading intervention

in the morning here at Live Oak. I enjoy helping kids learn so I pursue this desire by working with preschool students so

they can feel confident as learners when they start elementary school. I am looking forward to an exciting year ahead full of

discovery and learning with my students.

Ms. Miller
Welcome to the morning Preschool class at Live Oak Elementary! This is my first year at Live Oak,
I was previously teaching in Southern California. I was born and raised in Southern California and
moved up to the East Bay over the summer. I attended college at the University of Oregon, and
received by Special Education Early Childhood credential from California State
University-San Bernardino. I had been teaching for a few years before I decided to move to the
Bay Area to be closer to my friends from college. So far I am loving everything that the East Bay
has to offer!

I love teaching preschool because it is new and exciting for each student. I want my students to

learn to enjoy coming to school and to feel safe when away from their family. Learning through

play is the type of classroom environment I try to create to help ease the transition to school. 

When I’m not at Live Oak, I can probably be found walking around the best place on Earth, Target.

I also enjoy hanging out with friends and chatting about TV shows.

Hello, I am Mary Liddle. I teach preschool at Live Oak Elementary. I have been teaching

in the district for 17 years. I have taught preschool through 5th grade. I enjoy working

with the student 3 to 5 years old. I create a classroom environment of learning, play and care.

We have two classroom paras and service providers. 


Although I enjoy working with the little ones, I have three grown daughters who have graduated

and are working their dream jobs! I live locally and run into former students in the community often.

Maybe I will run into your family soon!
