Ms. Summer Rodriguez

About the Teacher:

Ms. Rodriguez, an Alumnus of both Liberty High and UC Berkeley, has been working at Liberty since 2000.  Known by most students as "Ms. Rod" or just "Rod," Ms. Rodriguez has spent her entire teaching career at LHS.  She was the Director of Student Activities at Liberty from 2002-2020. During her time at Liberty, she has taught English I-IV, AP English Language and Composition, AP English Literature and Composition, Peer Mediation, Leadership, and Freshmen Leadership. From 2001-2018, Ms. Rodriguez taught in the AHA/PADA Academy. For the 2020-2021 school year, Ms. Rodriguez teaches AP English Literature & Composition and English 10. Ms. Rodriguez is excited to be the new Culture Shock Club Advisor for 2020/21.  Ms. Rodriguez firmly believes in the potential of all students to succeed to high levels, noting that it often just takes someone to set the bar high and believe in/support them. Some joke that Ms. Rodriguez lives at Liberty High, but that hasn't yet been proven true :)
