Lisa is a New York City native and has raised two daughters here, and so understands the dynamics of providing a nurturing stability in an ever-changing environment. She comes to NAISNY after having taught for four years at a play-based private school on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. Previous to that, Lisa volunteered teaching preschool-aged children in a non-profit setting for many years. This love of working with children has led Lisa to recently begin pursuit of a degree in Early Childhood Education specializing in Pre-School/Early Elementary learning. She excitedly looks forward to joining our team and working with our Early Years students and staff.
