Lisa is a science educator and curriculum developer with classroom experience ranging from pre-K students to 7th grade. As a classroom teacher for students with language-based learning disabilities such as dyslexia, she developed a hands-on, interactive teaching style that brings science to life and incorporates the interests and curiosities of students. After almost 20 years in traditional school settings, Lisa currently works as a curriculum consultant to schools and families. She also writes and teaches weekend, after-school, and camp programs at the American Museum of Natural History in the Adventures in Science Program.

Lisa received her B.A. in Psychology from Brown University and M.A. in Elementary and Special Education from Bank Street College. Always curious and interested in nature, Lisa developed a passion for doing and teaching science after participating in Earthwatch expeditions as a research volunteer. Her five projects included tracking sea turtles in St. Croix and on Australia’s Great Barrier Reef, excavating archaeological ruins in Peru and England, and mapping glacial flooding in Iceland.
