Mrs. Lisa Bishop MCES Teacher of the Year 2016
about 1 year ago
Mrs. Bishop has been an educator for 26 years. She has worked in Montgomery County since 2001. She has taught several grades throughout her tenure but remains firm in thinking third grade is the best grade to teach! The students are so eager to learn. Reading is now a skill they utilize to grow as learners. It is amazing to watch the daily growth of a third grader.
Mrs. Bishop is married to Jamie, and they have two children, Tara and Andrew. Three of the four members of the Bishop household are EAGLES. We proudly represent the classes of 1986, 2012, and 2015! Even though Jamie did not have the privilege of being educated in our school system, he feels this is a major part of his life as well!
As stated earlier, Mrs. Bishop graduated from Montgomery County High School in 1986. She graduated from Brewton-Parker College in 1990 with a Bachelor of Science in Early Childhood Education. She continued her educational journey by enrolling in Walden University and obtaining a Master’s Degree in Reading and Literacy in 2009. Learning is a lifelong adventure therefore she is constantly taking classes to enhance her performance in the classroom.
Mrs. Bishop attends Bible Baptist Church in Vidalia, GA. She enjoys working with the children as well as learning from the seasoned members of the congregation. Faith is a huge part of Mrs. Bishop’s life.
Each day is filled with promise. Being an educator affords Mrs. Bishop to embrace each day with the curiosity and determination found in the hearts of nine year olds. Life is great in room 134! There is no other option for a career choice in Mrs. Bishop’s world!
