Hello First Grade Families! My name is Mrs. Lisa Pessa and I wanted to take a moment to introduce myself. I am very excited to co-teach with Ms. Devecchio this year! This will be my fourth year teaching at South Harrison. I have my Elementary Education and Sociology Degrees from Rowan. I have also received my Special Education certification at Rowan. Over the years, I have done many wonderful things in the field of Education including teacher, preschool director, and trainer. Books, phonics, and science are three of my favorite things! I also enjoy doing a variety of arts and crafts!
Spending time with my family is my favorite thing to do when I'm not at school. I am the mother of three terrific children; Chris, Kylie and Celea! Disney World is my favorite place in the world! Some things I enjoy in my free time include crossword puzzles, gardening, going to the beach and watching the Eagles with my husband and dad. I also love my animals including my 2 dogs, 4 cats, 1 bird, and 12 chickens!
I am looking forward to a terrific year with your children! Thank you for your support! I am also looking forward to the strong partnerships that we will develop with each of you!
