All About Me

Hi!  My name is Lisa Smith, but some students call me Ms. STEM.  STEM is an acronym for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math and the special I have taught over the last 6 years at New World, when I created the STEM program here.

Teaching has always been a dream of mine for as long as I can remember, so I received my Bachelor of Arts in Education at Arizona State University in 2001 and Masters in Curriculum and Instruction at University of Phoenix in 2021.  I have been teaching for almost 20 years, with over 10 in Gifted Education. 

Last year, I began my new role as Reading Intervention Coach, where I was able to work with students one on one to help support their growth in ELA.  This year I am excited to work with teachers more as I expand my role into a Instructional Coach in ELA and continue teaching STEM with the middle school students!
