Hello My Name Is...

Lisa Hess

Hello!  I am Lisa Hess, your 1st grade teacher!  I am so excited to be part of TTE and learn all about you! 
A little about me...  this is the beginning of my 18th year of teaching.  I began my career in Stevens Point , WI, my college town.   After only one year, I hung up my beret (I was a middle school French teacher) and took an adventure of a lifetime to teach in Anchorage, Alaska.  I was a kindergarten and first grade teacher during my 8 years there.  My husband was transferred to a small remote island in Southeast Alaska, so I took some time off to substitute teach, raise my (then) two children and wonder the beautiful island.  We finally landed in Colorado 8 years ago.  Since moving here, I have been a kindergarten teacher in the district, a second grade teacher here at TTE for the last 4 years,  bought a house in Parker, and had my third child.  I am a Wisconsinite and you will hear my accent from time to time.  I love to run, kickbox and craft.  My children are 12, 9, and 6.  Teaching is my passion!  Here we go on an amazing ride called First Grade!  Let the adventure begin!
