Did you know that we have several student teachers working alongside our classroom teachers this year? We hope to profile them over the next few weeks…up first is Lisa Krona, who has been student teaching with Mrs. Day in 5th grade.
What is your name, and what grade/specialty do you teach?
Lisa Krona, 5th Grade
Tell us a bit about your family. Do you have kids? If so, what ages are they? Do you have pets?
My husband Jack and I have been married for 15 years. We have a son named Jack who is 10 years old and is in the 4th grade. Our family has two boxers named Gunnar and Della.
What are your hobbies? What do you love to do outside of work?
I love going camping with all of our extended family. In the summer, we spend time traveling, waterskiing, and golfing. I also enjoy going to see movies.
You are a student teacher here at Crescent Heights. How are you enjoying 5th grade? What grade do you ultimately want to teach?
Before student teaching, I spent most of my time in the lower elementary grades. Being in a 5th grade classroom has been a great experience to learn and grow. I am so thankful to have been paired with Heather Day. She’s an incredible teacher! Mrs. Day and the students have taught me so much. It’s going to be hard to leave.
I’m not sure what grade I’ll end up teaching, but I know I’d like to stay with elementary grades. I haven’t found a grade that I don’t enjoy.
What is the funniest thing a student has ever done in your class?
I had a first grader share what she wanted to be when she grew up. Among the long list of things she wanted to be, she included being a fairy. I just love that anything was possible.
If you weren’t a teacher, what else would you love to do as your career?
If I weren’t going to be a teacher, I would enjoy being an occupational therapist.
Tell us one thing you’d love for the families of Crescent Heights to know about you.
I have really enjoyed being a part of the Crescent Heights team. Thank you for making me feel so welcome.
Thanks Lisa! It has been great getting to know you – and we wish you lots of luck as you embark on your teaching career!!
