Interviewer: What do you wish schools focused on more in terms of education and why?
Lisa: I wish they would focus more on how what students learn in school may apply to their adult lives. It is difficult for students to see how they might use some information as adults. They think because they are not interested in a certain subject, it is not something they will need later on.
Interviewer: What are three interesting facts about you?
Lisa: I love to travel; I am happy to get on a plane and go pretty much anywhere. England is my favorite place to visit. My mom is from England, so I grew up going there. When I was a kid, I always wanted to be a teacher. I never really wavered from that, except for wanting to be a rock star when I was in high school. I love going to concerts and screaming along with everyone else!
