Mr. Andrew Tibbetts » Welcome!!


Welcome to Room 28!
I am beyond excited to start this 2021/2022 school year!
I am entering my fourth year as a teacher, my third in fifth grade. The past three years I have spent my time teaching at Norris Elementary, so the Norris blood runs deep with me! Before coming back to Bakersfield, I spent three years in Iowa playing baseball under scholarship and obtaining my Bachelor's Degree in Education from Briar Cliff University.
When not at school, you can find me in two different areas. First, at home with my wife, Maddison, and our (puppy) baby, Maebeline. Maddison and I got married July 24th, so this summer will be one to remember forever! Maebeline came into our lives the day of Christmas and to say she has been a blessing to us is an understatement!
If I am not at home, I am most likely giving pitching lessons. I started "Tibbetts Pitching" upon my return to Bakersfield. When I first started, I had about six athletes working with me. Two years later, I have about thirty-two young athletes! My family and baseball certainly keep me level-headed!!
If I ever get free time, you might find me on a golf course trying to convince myself I'm good at golf or a lake trying to catch some monster fish!
I cannot contain my excitement to start this new journey at Olive Drive and I am eager to see the progress my students make through this year! WE GOT THIS!!
