Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year. Hello, my name is Lisa Schneller!. This will be my 27th year in education, and my 17th year in the gifted department. I have a wonderful husband, John, we have been married almost 23 years; and we have two daughters, Katie Lyn and Analise. Katie Lyn is a senior at Georgia Southern University, studying exercise science. She plans on becoming a physical therapist and will begin her doctoral program in 2020.
Analise, is a junior at the University of North Georgia, and she is studying elementary education/communication disorders. We love animals and have one pup named Paisley (we lost her sister Maisey this summer to cancer) and 4 baby goats: Milly, Willy, Billy and Gilly.
I am a graduate of Auburn University, B.S. Ed. (War Eagle!) and we love to go to the football games (we love SEC football) and also enjoy attending the ladies softball games. My Masters in Education, M.Ed., is from Piedmont College and I have received my Gifted/Torrance certifications through the University of Georgia.
We have made our church home at Turning Point and we enjoy spending time with our family of choice and serving others.
Some of my favorite things to do: be active in church, learn new things, take care of our baby goats, travel, DIY projects, and spending time with family and friends.
I am a mom of two gifted girls so I can certainly relate with my students at school (and of course their parents)... socially, emotionally and academically. One daughter is a perfectionist, overachiever, teacher pleaser and has had her share of meltdowns when something is difficult for her.
The other one is the polar opposite, happy go lucky, friendly, compassionate, doesn't work to her full potenital (frustrating as a parent),and problem solver. Each child is unique and has their own personal struggles and as a teacher, I want to be sure to try and best meet each student's needs.
Please reach out to me if you have any questions or concerns.
