Welcome to the school year! My name is Lisa Dobson and I am excited to be a teacher at Chandler Online Academy. I am looking forward to a great school year! Please feel free to contact me with any questions.
My Education and Professional Background
I am a proud graduate of Phoenix College where I received my degree in Sign Language Interpreting. After a career as an educational interpreter I obtained my B.A in Education from Ottawa University and a Masters Degree in School Counseling. This is my 13th year teaching, 8th here at CUSD.
My Educational Philosophy
I believe that every child has the right to receive the best education possible. I believe that the special people chosen to provide that education must make sure everything they teach, say, do and believe comes from the heart. I believe that along with education comes personal growth, self respect, respect for others and a yearning for knowledge that stays an entire lifetime. I feel that a great teacher learns just as much from each of their students as their students learn from them. I believe that a successful classroom is a classroom that doesn't know the difference between work and fun, their work IS fun. A successful teacher doesn't teach to a book, they teach to the day. They are flexible, energetic, understanding and seize each day as a new opportunity to impact the lives of their students.
