1st Grade Teacher

The kids call me: Ms. Lisa or Ms. Wise

Grades I've taught: 1st-4th grades

My favorite thing about teaching: I love to see my kiddos have those "lightbulb moments"---moments when they put into practice what we have learned, and they are doing it on their own. It's the best to see their faces light up and realize they actually can do it!
