Lisa Driver, 3rd Grade
Welcome to a new school year at Heritage Heights Academy! My name is Lisa Driver and I will be teaching third grade this year. A native Coloradoan, I grew up in Aurora and graduated from Overland High School. I spent my college years at Fort Lewis College in Durango, Colorado. I graduated from there with a major in Humanities and a minor in Elementary Education. My husband and I just celebrated our 18th wedding anniversary this summer. We currently live in Denver with our two children. As a family, we enjoy all the outdoor activities Colorado offers (camping, boating, biking, hiking, skiing). In my free time, I really like to get lost in a book. Mysteries are my favorite, but I like to read non-fiction too.
My career as a teacher began in 1997 after graduating from college. I was a substitute teacher for various front range school districts. In 1999, I began my teaching career at Kiowa Elementary School in Kiowa, Colorado. I taught there for ten years. I taught fifth grade for five years and then moved to second grade where I taught for another five years. I left teaching for a few years to focus on raising my family, but I always knew I’d return to the classroom. This past fall I began teaching again as a guest teacher for Denver Public Schools. I’m excited to be a part of Heritage Heights Academy.
