Hello! My name is Lisa Foster and this is my 27th year teaching.  I have been at William Harris Elementary School for 12 years.  I taught Cross Categorical for 10 1/2 years before moving to Lifeskills last year.  I began my teaching career in New Berlin where I taught 6th grade for 3 years and junior high 1 year.  Then I took a teaching position in Petersburg where I taught 5th grade for 8 years.  Then accepted an elementary principal position in the Panhandle School District for 3 years before accepting the position at Harris. 

I received my Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education from St. Mary's College in Notre Dame, Indiana.  I received my Masters in Educational Administration from University of Illinois at Springfield.  My endorsement for special education came from Southern Illinois University at Edwardsville.  I currently live in Raymond, Illinois with my husband; 3 dogs; and 4 cats. 

In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family; reading; hiking; traveling; gardening; and exercising.
