Degrees and Certifications:
I am a proud graduate of Boise State. I obtained my Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education with a Literacy Endorsement in 2014. In the summer of 2018, I reached my goal of earning my Master of Arts in Curriculum and Instruction.
Miss Lisa Strader
My name is Lisa Strader, and I am happy to introduce myself as a fifth grade teacher at Chief Joseph School of the Arts. This is my second year at Chief Joseph, and my fourth year of teaching. All of my teaching experience so far has been in fifth grade. I love the level of complexity we reach in fifth grade and the excitement that comes from the last year of elementary school. My goal is to help my students become lifelong learners, and to prepare them for middle school and beyond!
Before becoming a certified teacher, my experience revolved around learning in various ways. I taught martial arts from the time I was old enough to have a job until I graduated from Boise State. Teaching martial arts introduced me to my passion of helping others reach their goals. I also tutored math at Boise State for two years, and tutored reading privately.
I am so excited for the many things our class will do this year. Please don't hesitate to contact me if you ever have questions about your child's learning. Let's work together to make this year fantastic!
