Judy Leimbach received her Masters Degree in instructional strategies in gifted education from National Louis University. She has 14 years of experience teaching in regular classrooms, kindergarten through fifth grade, and 14 years experience teaching gifted students in grades 1st through 5th. In addition, she has spent 5 years supervising groups of student teachers at Wheaton College.
When she first started teaching in a gifted program, there were few materials available for gifted students in primary grades, so Judy began writing her own and had several books published. Having previously taught in the regular classroom, she was also very aware of the need for high quality, easy to use materials for regular classroom teachers to use for their gifted elementary students in both primary and intermediate grades. So she began working with other teachers, including her daughter, a middle school math teacher, developing materials to meet that need. It has been a privilege for Judy to share their work with other teachers, through publishing a variety of books of teaching materials and by presenting at various workshops. Now that Judy is enjoying retirement, it is a great pleasure for her to know that through these books, she is still involved in education.
