2016 Macon County High School Graduation Rate
Macon County School System's
Teacher of the Year
Ms. Lisa Green
Lisa Green grew up in Perry, Georgia and graduated from Perry High School. Because of her strong desire to make a difference in the lives of children, she attended Fort Valley State University. In 1989, she received a Bachelor of Science in Early Childhood Education, then pursued a Master degree in 1992.
Lisa Green has been teaching for 28 years. She began her career at Tabor Junior High for two years as an ISS coordinator. During the past 26 years, she taught kindergarten in Macon County. During the 2016-2017 school term, she was delighted to be selected as Teacher of the Year at Macon County Elementary. Shortly afterwards, she received a greater surprise when selected as District Teacher of the Year! Lisa was in completely awe of such an accomplishment.
It is Lisa’s belief that every child is like a sponge, ready to absorb everything that is presented to them when using the right method of teaching. Her most rewarding moments in education are the “wow” and “aha” moments students receive during instruction. She provides them with a stimulating and nurturing environment where each child feels safe to learn and take risks.
As a veteran teacher, Lisa strives to do her best and improve her craft. She pledges to be a role model for fellow and new educators, attend professional development and collaborative grade level meetings, and learn from teachers as they learn from her. Her current motto is “We are in this together, so let’s teach one to reach one.”
It's a great day to be a Macon County Bulldog!
