Meet Our Teachers
Ms. Lisa was a public school teacher in New Jersey, Colorado and Barcelona, before she took time off to raise her family. As her 4 children grew older she decided to return to work and was lucky to land at Valley Brook, where she has been for the last 7 years.
Some of Ms. Lisa’s favorite things to do when she’s not chauffeuring her kids to soccer games, track meets, football games or social events, are actually watching her kids soccer games, track meets, and football games, as well as cooking, reading, playing games with her family, and spending time with her St. Bernard.
Ms. Lisa holds a Bachelor’s Degree from Rutgers University, and a Master’s of Education from the University of Colorado. Although no longer a student, she continues to learn new things every day from the children in her class.
Ms. Lisa’s favorite quote: “Teachers who love teaching… teach children to love learning.”
