Pedersen, Lissa (Art)

Hello! I am Miss Lissa and I am the art teacher at Leicester Elementary School! 
I am also the Erwin District Teacher of the Year for 2019.

A little bit about me: Before joining Leicester Elementary School in August 2011, I was the K-8 art teacher at Francine Delany Charter School in West Asheville. I earned my AIG Add-On Certification from Western U. in 2012.  Before that, I taught art to K-6th grade students at 2 public schools in NJ. I earned my Master's degree in Art Education from Teacher's College, Columbia U. in May 2005.

Before even all that, I earned my Bachelor's degree in Fine Art at Rutgers U. in NJ & traveled far and wide across the country seeing our fine country, meeting fine people, and making much fine art to boot!

When I'm not working tirelessly writing lesson plans and gathering art materials for LES students, you can find me hiking with my kid & my dog, cooking, working on my house and my yard, and... (oh yes)...making art.Welcome to my Classroom!
