Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Lisa Strauss

 My name is Mrs. Strauss. I am a 3rd grade teacher at New York Elementary school. I have worked for Lawrence Public Schools since 2007.  I was an instructional support assistant for math at Sunflower Elementary for 8 years.  in 2014, I decided to go back to college. I graduated in May 2016 with my Masters degree in Education from the University of Saint Mary in Leavenworth, KS. I love math. I love the challenge that math brings for children every day. Being able to see the joy and excitement when my students achieve accomplishments in math is why I am here every day. 

Besides being a teacher, I am also a wife, mother, a sport's fan, an avid reader, a gardener, and a sun lover. 

I love being a part of New York Elementary School. The residents have such a wonderful reputation and commitment to this neighborhood and school. I look forward to working with all my students and their families this school year.
