Welcome to My Classroom
William Bulter Yeats once said, "Education is no the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire." As your teacher I hope that you will learn more than facts in my classroom. Education is meant to be meaningful and create a spark in your life that will lead to a full blown desire for a lifetime of learning.
Our classroom will reach our strategic goal, by working together cooperatively, supporting each other when we need help, being respectful of others and their opinions, having a positive attitude, listening carefully, and by following the rules we created as a class.
My name is Lisa Souther. My husband, Brian, was born and raised in Union Grove. We have four children, three girls, one boy, and a toy poodle. I enjoy traveling, spending time with my family, learning new things, taking photos, and just because they are challenging, I participate in triathlons.
Prior to coming to Union Grove Elementary, I spent 12 years in a private school as a music teacher and math tutor. Upon entering the public school system, I began as a subsitute teacher and soon filled many interim positions. They included high school math, computer lab teacher, school guidance counselor and an EC resource teacher.
I enjoyed it so much that I decided to go back to school and earned a Masters Degree in Elementary Education. In 2010, I earned my National Board Certification.
In 2006, I joined the Union Grove Staff. For the past six years, I have had the pleasure of working with many outstanding students. Additionally, it has been my honor to serve as the robotics coach. Union Grove students are awesome and I am continually impressed with them. I look forward to seeing what this year will bring!
