Mrs. Lisa Jesse

Hello Garrettford Families! My name is Lisa Jesse and I'm so excited to begin my 2nd year at Garrettford as a Reading Specialist. Prior to coming to Garrettford I have been an elementary classroom teacher, a special education teacher, and a reading specialist in a Delaware public school district. I received my Bachelor's Degree in Elementary and Special Education from the University of Delaware in 2001, and my Master's of Education in Literacy from Wilmington University in 2005. I love working with children to help them become independent readers who love to read.

At home, I love spending time with my husband and our 3 awesome kids, Bethany (9th grade), Dylan (5th grade), and Josh (Kindergarten). When we aren't at Bethany's dance performances or theater productions or Dylan's ice hockey games, we love biking, baking, watching movies, reading, and going down the shore in the summer to beach, boat, fish and crab. My family loves, loves, loves animals, especially dogs. We have a 16 year old dachshund, Sammy and a 1 year old Luna, a siberian husky and blue heeler mix.

I'm looking forward to working with your children this year. Please feel free to contact me with any and all of your reading questions.
