Connect with me:


isina believes that a strong plan is the foundation to success in all parts of life.  As a teacher, she experienced first-hand the importance of a strong plan both instructionally and culturally.  When coaching, Lisina gets energy from helping teachers set up the routines, systems, and plans that they need to be successful in their classrooms.


Originally from Upstate New York, Lisina graduated from SUNY Geneseo and moved to Houston in 2008 as a Teach for America Corps Member. She spent four years teaching 3rd and 4th grade in Alief ISD before joining the Teaching Excellence Team.  When not coaching teachers, Lisina leads the Teaching Excellence Culture Team and can be found planning team builders and fun events to ensure that our team feels valued, appreciated, and celebrated.


Outside of work, Lisina loves to read and do DIY and craft projects. Currently, Lisina has been to 15 countries and has an ambitious goal of making it to 40 before she turns 40.
