Meet the Librarian

Hello!  My name is Lisa Lode.  I am happy to be the new teacher-librarian for Sible-Ocheyedan Schools.  I work in the libraries every Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.   This is my 31st year in education.  I live in Sanborn with my husband Lee, the mechanic for O'Brien County.  We have two sons, DJ, 24, who coaches high school football, and junior high wrestling, as well as being the head baseball coach. He is an educational para for South O'Brien Schools and is going to Buena Vista University for special education.  Dalton is 22 and is working as a service and tire technician in Boyden.   

I received my early childhood/elementary education bachelor's degree from the University of Northern Iowa, my reading endorsement from Northwestern College, a master's degree in elementary counseling from Wayne State College, and a master's degree in Library and Information Science from the University of Iowa.  

In my free time, I am usually reading or playing with some new piece of technology!  My family likes to golf and watch football, baseball, and hockey.  We are HUGE Vikings fans (Skol, Vikings!) and usually try to make it to at least one game each season!
