I was born and raised in Des Moines, Iowa.  I graduated from Iowa State University with my Bachelors of Arts in Family and Consumer Science Education.  I started my teaching career at Liberty Junior High in 2005, after completing my student teaching for Liberty Public Schools.  While beginning my teaching career, I also obtained my Masters of Eduction in Curriculum and Instruction from Baker University.  I began teaching at  Liberty High School in 2013.  I got married to my husband Sean in April 2012 and we welcomed our son, Harrison, on my birthday in June 2013.  For free time, I enjoy traveling and watching the Kansas City Royals and St. Louis Cardinals.

My name is Marla Badalucco.  I was born and raised in the Kansas City area.  I went to the University of Missouri for college and got my degree in Textile and Apparel Management with a Business minor.  I worked in the retail industry before deciding to go back and get my Masters in Teaching.  I have been at Liberty High School since 2006.  The classes I mainly teach are Housing, Textiles and Construction, and Advanced Clothing. I got married in October 2010 to Joe and we have our pug, Ringo.  In my free time I enjoy traveling, spending time with friends and family, following the Missouri Tigers, and working in my garden.

I grew up here in the Northland.  I graduated from Winnetonka High School and attended UCM where I earned a Bachelor’s degree in Early Childhood and Elementary Education. While teaching, I earned a Master’s degree in Technology in Education from Lesley University. I taught kindergarten and first grade for the North Kansas City School District for nine years.  I loved working with the little ones; however, I decided to follow my passions and make a big change: I got certified to teach FACS, and it has been the best decision ever!

I started teaching for LPS in 2010.  I taught FACS for Liberty Academy for my first two years.  I was able to teach Housing and Interior Design, Pregnancy and Parenting, Intro. to Culinary, Culinary I and II, Textiles and Construction, and Healthy Living. I have found my niche teaching culinary!   I was able to implement the ProStart curriculum at the academy and took their first ever competitive cooking team to the state ProStart competition this past February in Union, MO.  I absolutely love teaching culinary skills to my students.  I firmly believe that “anyone can cook,” and I look forward to teaching ProStart for Liberty High School.

I have a wonderful husband, Kyle, of twelve years.  I also have two beautiful and creative children.  My son, Cole, is eight and my daughter, Lilly, is four.  In my spare time, I enjoy cooking, running, shopping, traveling, reading, doing anything creative, and spending time with my family and friends.

I was born in Warrensburg. I Graduated From UCM with an Advanced Degree and a Masters in Secondary Administration. I love working with the high school students and preschool children together. It is amazing to watch each of them learn and grow each and every day. I believe they both learn from one another. It is a great opportunity for all involved! I enjoy running, cooking, and reading. My life's goal is to be successful in all that I do. My Favorite Quote is, “I can do all things through him that strengthens me and everything happens right when it is supposed to.” I have been married for 11 years and have 3 beautiful children. My boys are 7 and my daughter is 3. We love being outdoors doing things or just sitting on the couch for family movie night!
