Lisa Mullaney – Grade 2/3
“I don’t personally trust any revolution where love is not allowed.” -Maya Angelou
Lisa brings her lifelong love of learning into the classroom in a way that inspires the children, and allows her to see each individual’s way of learning as an invitation to stretch herself as a teacher.
She holds a Bachelor of Arts in Communications from University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee, a Master of Arts in Education from Mount Mary College, and a Waldorf Teaching Certificate for Grades 1-8 from Great Lakes Waldorf Institute. Prior to teaching in Waldorf schools, Lisa worked in Adult Education teaching Anatomy and Physiology and Therapeutic Massage Techniques following a career as a Massage Therapist for a decade and a half. She also offered Prenatal, Labor Support, and Post-partum services as a Doula, and provided Personal Care and In-Home Assistance for persons living with permanent injuries or terminal illnesses. A reverence for all stages of life, and a striving toward servant leadership are the threads that connect her occupational experiences.
In Summer, Lisa enjoys many outdoor activities including long dog-walks and runs along the lake, gardening and yard work, biking, kayaking, beach-combing, and swimming. During the school year her hobbies include watching independent films, reading contemporary literature, historical fiction, and food blogs, trying out new recipes and restaurants, and hiking and snowshoeing close to home.
