Hello! My name is Lisa Simpson and I just want to share with you how excited I am to be teaching second grade at Mission West. After 9 years of teaching in the Philippines I feel as if I have come home! I have been married for 33 years and have four wonderful children. My youngest is in third grade right here at Mission West. In January I am expecting my first grandchild. I look forward to sharing this exciting time with my second graders. I think teaching is the greatest job in the world. There is nothing more rewarding than watching a child reach their fullest potential. Success comes when we all work together! I encourage my parents to become volunteers. You will be amazed at the difference we can make together. Let’s set our goals high and spread those wings to fly to success. We ARE MISSION WEST WILDCATS!
