Ms. Aubrey Rose

I come from our nearby friendly state of Illinois where I earned both a bachelor's degree in art education and a master's degree in Literacy, more specifically, English Language Learners (ELL). After teaching in northern Illinois for eight years, I decided I wanted to live closer to beautiful Lake Michigan and teach in the Duneland district. I spend my free time planning road trips and scheming up ways to get more stamps in my passport. I also spend a lot of time playing pickleball with my buddies. I enjoy reading on my kindle and watching old movies. I have taught kindergarten through 4th-grade art for 15 years.

Mr. Bob Nemtuda

I have been teaching Physical Education for 31 years. This will be my 24th year teaching Physical Education at Liberty Elementary. I was also the Boy's JV/Varsity Basketball coach at Chesterton High School for 17 years. I am a huge baseball fan and my favorite team is the Chicago White Sox. I love collecting baseball items, spending my free time watching baseball, and playing with my two dogs, Oakley and Obie, whom I love to take to the beach or Coffee Creek.
