Farrell, Lisa

Hello! I am Lisa Farrell.  This is my ninth year as a teacher at Carlisle Elementary School.  I  am very honored and blessed to be teaching at such a wonderful school. I  have taught second and third grade. I am a highly qualified teacher. I am a 1985 graduate of Southside High School.  I graduated in December 2015 with a Masters Degree in English Second Language from UAB. I also graduated in December 2007 with a Bachelors Degree and Honors in Elementary Education from Jacksonville State University and in May 2001 with an Associates Degree in Education from Gadsden State Community College. I completed my student teaching in Kindergarten at Mitchell Elementary School in Gadsden before graduating and becoming a teacher at Carlisle Elementary School.  Prior to graduating from college to become a teacher, I was a secretary for the State of Alabama for seven years, worked in banking for ten years, and spent several years in retail. 
I have a wonderful family.  My husband and I have two daughters. One daughter is twenty-nine and married and the other is twenty in college. We live in Hokes Bluff and are members of Goodyear Heights Baptist Church.  I have been an adult member and volunteer with the Girl Scouts of America and the American Woodmen Youth Association.  My hobbies in my free time are reading, doing crossword puzzles, working out at the gym with my family, traveling, and  spending quality time with my family.  
I am very excited about having your child in my room this year.  We will be learning many new and exciting things and doing many activities together. Your child's education and welfare are very important to me and I want to do all that I can to make your child's learning experience the best it can be.  If you ever need to contact me about anything, please send me a note or e-mail me at Lisa_Farrell@ecboe.org.
