speakerWhat People Are Saying

I try to give the children a way to connect learning to real life situations in all subject matter. I adjust my lessons to help each student succeed and continually make progress. -- Lisa Donovan

Lisa’s lesson planning design is exemplary and her choice of strategies to engage the students is also exemplary. She takes the time to introduce her topic objective with the use of technology, presents material within the topic that she wants the students to learn, and follows up with explaining the subject matter and working with each individual child to check for understanding. -- University Supervisor

I am continually impressed with the degree of care, presentation, and thoughtfulness Lisa gives to every lesson and to each student. She is flexible, open-minded and always willing to try new things. -- Cooperating Teacher
