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 for 15 years. This is my seventh year working at New York Elementary. Before, I was an instructional support assistant for math at Sunflower Elementary and the 2/3 grade math/reading teacher at New York. Nine years ago, 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.
