Who Am I?

Lisa Holland

Mathematics Department Chair

What Do I Love About Teaching?

I have always enjoyed the “mystery” to math. My father would always multiply 2-digit numbers off the top of his head and he never shared with me how he did it so quickly and easily! I now know he was using the Distributive Property. I want to be that teacher that makes students curious enough to want to know answers… and then go find them!

What are my Professional Goals?
