Madame Lisa Fisnot
I come from Troyes (pronounced like the number 3 in French!), but I have lived in and around Tours for about 13 years. My family back in France is composed of my mom, my stepdad and my three sisters (plus our three dogs, 6 cats, numerous chicken and ducks). I have been living in Phoenix with my cat, Suerte, for the last 3 years. She traveled with me from France.
I have always wanted to be a teacher (unfortunately for my sisters who had to deal with me "teaching" them random things throughout the last 20 years). I am passionate about all things history, languages and sports.
In my free time, I enjoy watching sports (hockey and soccer especially!), as well as reading books and playing board games. I enjoy watching most sports, but I LOVE ice hockey and going to games. Flowers make me happy, and hopefully I will be able to keep some in our classroom to brighten our days. “Flowers always make people better, happier, and more helpful: they are sunshine, food and medicine to the soul.” -Luther Burbank

MY EDUCATIONAL PHILOSOPHY
My philosophy is to reach each child where they are at and bring them as high as they can go, while teaching lifelong skills such as languages, collaboration, communication, creativity and critical thinking.
