Mrs. Lisa Boyer

 

 

Welcome our 4th and 5th grade class at Wilson K-8 in beautiful Oro Valley, Arizona. I am looking forward to an amazing year!  I have my B.A. in Psychology and my Master's Degree in Education with an emphasis in school counseling.  I am a certified K-8 teacher and school counselor.  This year will be my 25th year of teaching in the Amphitheater School District.  I started my teaching career at Rio Vista Elementary teaching 4th grade and math intervention and then moved to Wilson in 2001.

I grew up in upstate New York and then moved to San Diego when I was in high school.  After we got married I moved to Tucson with my husband Will.  We have two beautiful daughters who both attend Ironwood Ridge High School.  I am a big U of A fan - Go Cats!  

 

Defining Moment in Education

When I started college my major was accounting.  I grew up with parents who were accountants and  they ran a small accounting firm out of our house.  Sophomore year of college I worked as a teacher's aide in a 4th grade classroom at Long Beach Unified School District.  I loved the job so much and learned so much from the teacher that I decided to change my major.  I have been working with kids ever since.

 

Core Beliefs

I believe that every student can be successful in my classroom.  I know that it is important for me to help students reach their full potential and gain the skills needed to be successful in their daily lives and their future.
