Hi! I’m Lisa, also known as Ms Carlson. I am a 4th generation Colorado native. I graduated from Cherry Creek High School, then went to CU Boulder for college and the University of Denver for my teaching/Master’s Degree. I have been a teacher for 9 years and have taught 1st, 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade. I started out in Aurora, then Cherry Creek, and most recently spent the last 4 in Denver Public Schools. I am so excited to be teaching 2nd grade this year. My students are awesome! When I’m not teaching, you can find me at home where I love to garden, cook, bake, play with my dogs, do art, and practice yoga. My favorite thing about teaching is using enthusiasm and creativity to foster a love of learning in my students that lasts a lifetime!
