Hello my name is Lisa Criswell. I am a 3rd grade teacher at Hopkins Elementary. I am excited to be teaching in the Somerset School System - since I am a proud 1992 graduate of Somerset High School. After high school I attended Campbellsville University where I played basketball for four years and received my Bachelor’s degree. Then, I attended Eastern Kentucky University where I obtained my Master’s degree in education.
It is my belief that all students are capable of learning. I believe in using various teaching strategies to keep students engaged in the learning process. My classroom environment is structured and challenging, but fun. The climate in my classroom is warm and all inclusive. It is vital that each of my students know that they are an integral part of our class. This allows for a successful school year.
