Even at the age of 5, Libby Eberle has already learned what it takes to be a good student in the classroom.
The Marshalltown Area Catholic School kindergartner has impressed her teacher, Tamara Melde, at the St. Henry's attendance center.
"She's just respectable to others and is a good leader in the classroom," Melde said. "Other kids tend to follow her example and she's just an all-around great student."

Libby said she loves making things in class and already has a career goal lined up.
When asked what she wants to be when she grows up, she replied: "A zookeeper, because I like animals."
When she is not in school, she likes to play with toys, tumbling and spending time with her family.
