The Countdown to Summer!

May. 18th 2017

Hello Fair Acres campers and families!  Lisa, here, counting down the days until the first day of camp finally arrives!  It has been an amazing school year for me and I can’t wait to hear all about yours too! Lately, the itch to come back is getting stronger and I cannot wait to see you all!  As many of you know, I am a 7th grade history teacher at King Philip Middle School, which is about 10 minutes from Gillette Stadium, and I could not be happier to spend each day building amazing relationships with my students!  It truly is the most rewarding job and no day is ever the same.

Had to participate in a class wide dabbing picture!

With that said, for the third year now, I co-advised a group of students called the Student Ambassadors who were all recommended by their teachers as students that are compassionate, hardworking, and motivated student leaders.  With the help of these 60 amazing students, we successfully held our third annual Dodgeball Tournament, which yes, is as fun as it sounds!  With the help of my co-advisor and I, our students raised over $1,400.00 and donated over 54 bags of clothing to Cradles to Crayons!   Competition was high and the fun-o-meter was off the charts!  I could not be more proud to work with such a hardworking group of students or to help raise money for such a phenomenal organization.

In addition to that, I channeled my inner American Idol contestant and competed in my third lip-sync battle, with two other top-notch teachers. We rocked the house to a mash up of Justin Bieber, Adele, the Lion King, Grease, and of course N’Sync, so prepare for an encore this summer!

Finally, to cap off an already amazing year, after two years of challenging, inspiring, and gratifying classes, papers, and fieldwork, I graduated with my Master’s degree in Special Education from American International College. My final professor left us with the words “Just because the road is steep doesn’t mean you can’t make it, and just because it’s not done yet doesn’t mean that you can’t do it.”  I have always believed in setting goals and reaching for the stars and with this school year coming to a close, I feel more blessed than ever.

My biggest fans!

My next goal though, is to have the most awesome summer ever – with more laughs, memories, and spectacular fun than Fair Acres has ever seen.  Enjoy the last few weeks of your school years and I am so excited to see you all!

P.S. I did not have a baby, but my nephew was just too cute to keep from you!!! 🙂
