Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Lisa Chapman
I am looking forward to an exciting year at Discovery Elementary School. This year I will be co-teaching with first and fourth grade classes.
I was born in Washington, D.C. and grew up in Fairfax, Virginia. I graduated from VA Tech with a Bachelors of Arts degree in Political Science and a minor in History. In 2016, I received my Masters in Curriculum and Instruction from George Mason University. Prior to teaching, I worked for various congressman on Capitol Hill, and for the Governors of both Virginia and South Carolina.
My family and I have lived in Leesburg, Virginia for 17 years. I have two daughters attending college, one at Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU) and the other at VA Tech. In my spare time, I love to travel, cook, read, hike and kayak. I am also a huge Washington Capitals fan!!!!
As an ELL instructor I recognize the unique contributions all of my students can make towards our learning experiences. Mutual respect, tolerance and high academic standards are the expectations in my classroom. I look forward to a successful productive, and fun year.
Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns with your child's progress.
