After many years as New Garden’s Technology Facilitator, Lisa begins the 2017-18 school year as the Upper School Dean. Lisa is looking forward to her new position and will never forget why she loves NGFS, “When I started working at New Garden, I knew that I had found a home — a home where students are valued, teachers are valued, and both are honored equally. I am passionate about helping students and staff use technology in ethical and creative ways to process, problem-solve, and communicate with one another and the broader community, when appropriate. As I work with students and teachers, I am reminded that teaching and learning is a promise — a promise that whatever the person before me holds dear, they can accomplish.”

In her free time, Lisa enjoys reading, educating herself about technology, and spending time with her husband, John, her daughter, Lauren, and her dog, Max.
