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.

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!
