Dr. Lisa Souther
William Bulter Yeats once said, "Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire." Education is meant to be meaningful and create a spark in your life that will lead to a full blown desire for a lifetime of learning. It is my hope that all teachers will daily model this desire and ignite a passion for learning in the lives of their students.
As an instructional facilitator my mission is two fold. It begins with assisting teachers with their commitment to meeting the academic needs of every student. This is done by supporting teachers with the implementation of the ISS continuous improvement model through collaboration, aligned staff development, and coaching. It also includes assisting the principal as a school leader in a variety of ways, and ends with providing an exceptional education for every student.
My name is Lisa Souther. My husband, Brian, was born and raised in Union Grove. We have four children, three girls, one boy, a precious granddaughter, a toy poodle, and a large cat. I enjoy traveling, spending time with my family, learning new things, and taking photos.
I spent 12 years in a private school as a music teacher and math tutor. Upon entering the public school system, I began as a subsitute teacher and soon filled many interim positions. They included high school math, computer lab teacher, school guidance counselor and an EC resource teacher. I enjoyed it so much that I decided to go back to school and earned a Masters Degree in Elementary Education. In 2010, I earned my National Board Certification. In 2014, I earned by education specialist degree, principal license, and superintendent license, from Wingate University. In 2015, I completed my doctorate degree in Educational Leadership. What can I say, I love to learn!
In 2013, I became the Instructional Facilitator for Cool Spring. Since then it has been my pleasure of working with many outstanding students and teachers. I'm looking forward to another great year!
