Elizabeth Moshkowski

Barry Primary School 

Elizabeth Moshkowski began her first year of teaching in 2017 at our very own Randall Elementary! She graduated from SUNY Cortland and is certified in Elementary and Art Education. She was born and raised in Cortland and has an incredibly large heart for the community. "Miss. Mosh" knew she wanted to teach at the age of 10 years old and never let anything get in the way of that. Growing up her passion for school was soon joined by her love of art, which led her down the road of art education. Her goal as an educator is to empower students to build their creativity and confidence in order to use it in every aspect of their lives and futures. Her favorite pastimes are working in the ceramics studio, camping, and eating delicious desserts. With a heart close to adventure, she has loved the start of her career in Art Education and is excited for many more years to come!

Nadia Bieber

Smith Intermediate School

Nadia Bieber taught art at Barry and Virgil schools for 25 years prior to teaching at Smith School. Before teaching in Cortland, she taught in Ithaca and White Plains, N.Y.. She attended college at Keene State College, in N.H., where she received a B.A. in Fine Arts. Her career began working at WPIX-TV in Public Affairs Television, and then at Ogilvy & Mather Advertising, both in N.Y.C.. "These were artistically fulfilling and exciting jobs, but missing a key ingredient; working creatively with children!" This prompted her to go back to college and study Art Education at College of New Rochelle, where Nadia received her M.A. in Art Education. She moved to Central N.Y. from White Plains, N.Y., where Nadia grew up, to complete her schooling at Syracuse University. "I had finally found my career niche and moved to an area that felt like home!" Nadia met her wonderful husband, John, an incredibly talented craftsman/trim carpenter, and then became very proud parents of two sons, Sam and Owen. Their other beloved family members include their dog, Lucy and cat, Oscar. The Bieber family loves spending time together, outdoors amongst nature, specifically on their land and at their lake cottage! "I feel very grateful to work with students to allow them to explore the arts in its many forms and have a “safe” place for them to create! I've developed such connections with the students over these many years, they've become a part of my family!"
