Lisa Smith


Lisa is originally from the mountains of western North Carolina. She studied geology at Amherst College and went on to work many different jobs – including as an actor, a stage manager, a candy cook and chocolatier, a shoe salesperson, a studio manager for high-fashion photo shoots, and a museum tour guide – but she fell in love with teaching while tutoring for the SAT and ACT. She earned a masters in teaching from the American Museum of Natural History. Reports are that the movie Night at the Museum is false; they got the whole layout of the museum wrong. Otherwise, it’s an accurate portrayal. She is very much looking forward to the opportunity to build personal connections with each individual student
