About Lisa


Bio

I am a public school teacher and have taught first grade for over 25 years. It was my dream-come-true. Just last year, I was asked to move up to third grade since I have my certification in reading for K-12 and Ohio now has the Third Grade Guarantee. My heart was always in first grade but I've got to say that I'm actually loving third! It seems as though moving to a higher grade may be easier than moving to a lower grade. I have planned to stay in third for the next few years,...

I am a public school teacher and have taught first grade for over 25 years. It was my dream-come-true. Just last year, I was asked to move up to third grade since I have my certification in reading for K-12 and Ohio now has the Third Grade Guarantee. My heart was always in first grade but I've got to say that I'm actually loving third! It seems as though moving to a higher grade may be easier than moving to a lower grade. I have planned to stay in third for the next few years, too.

While being out of school for the summer, I am looking to stay mentally active and would love to try something new. I have always taught in a classroom of 20 to 30 students and it would be great to work one-on-one for a while. It is so satisfying to see a child finally be successful after having struggled with a certain skill. It is rewarding to know that I may have played a small part in that success.

I have many years of experience in a public elementary school. I am also member of the Greater Cleveland Council of Teachers of Mathematics.

I received my Masters Degree in Curriculum & Instruction along with becoming a Reading Specialist for K-12.

The district where I teach has been following Common Core State Standards for several years. I am very familiar with the structure of the Core.

I hold a permanent teaching certificate from the State of Ohio for grades 1-8.

The heart of the first grade curriculum is phonics/reading. I taught first grade for over 25 years.

I would enjoy working with any elementary child who needs a little extra support to be successful. Are you gonna be ready for your "new grade" when you go back to school?
