Hello everyone! My name is Lisa Slone and I have been teaching since 2013 - all in 1st grade. I am originally from Norton, Ohio, a small town near Akron (home of LeBron James and Goodyear Tire). In 2013, I was selected as a Teach for America – South Carolina corps member so I packed everything up and made the move down South. My TFA commitment was over after two years, but I loved teaching so much I decided to make the career change and stay in South Carolina. While I spent my first three years teaching in Marlboro county, I am happy and proud to have been a member of the North Vista community for six years now. At North Vista, I was chosen as the 2019-2020 Teacher of the Year. Teaching first grade is my passion, and I am excited for what this year holds for our first grade learners!
