Lisa’s fluency in French and Spanish allowed her to leave a rewarding career in healthcare for teaching to have more time to care for her two children. For 15 years, she taught French levels one through five, primarily at the high school level for Virginia Beach City Public Schools. Her teaching experience also includes distance learning or teaching simultaneously at multiple schools as well as homebound instruction for those students too ill to attend a traditional school. Since arriving in Central Virginia she has been guiding the educational experiences of her two children. Both children benefitted from the addition of Westminster classes to their schedules.
Learning another language provides us with an important tool to display God’s love and empathy towards others. I have seen time and time again, how communicating with others in their native language opens doors that may not have been open any other way. I truly enjoy helping students acquire language skills and cultural respect and competency in a fun and interactive environment.
