Lisa loves teaching Spanish and she enjoys bringing playful passion and creative insight into her Spanish classroom every day! Lisa reveals that she never planned on becoming a Spanish teacher. It was something that fell into her life and wound up inspiring, motivating, and feeding her in deeply meaningful ways. She gets a kick out of remembering her own Spanish teacher, a loving fiery Cuban teacher whom Lisa adored, and thinking now of themselves as peers!
Lisa majored in Italian Studies and Environmental Sciences at Emory University in Atlanta and went on to earn her Master’s in Teaching from East Tennessee State University. She has taught Spanish in various settings including a public high school, a private college, and a medical college in Tennessee as well as English to adult learners. Lisa’s favorite teaching environment, by far!, is Rainbow Community School where she feels inspired and loved and is happy inspiring and loving her students and all of the Rainbow community!
A daughter of Italian immigrants, Lisa loves languages and cultures and Rainbow! Lisa feels strongest in the natural and creative domains and takes every possible opportunity to support vocabulary learning with artistic projects.
