Interviewer: What is your name?

Lisa: Lisa Panka

Interviewer: What is your position at CSA?

Lisa:  Senior Director, Curriculum Development

Interviewer: What does that position entail?

Lisa: My position entails working with our clients and our curriculum team to plan and execute a variety of projects. 

Interviewer: How did you become a part of CSA?

Lisa: Four years ago, I saw a job posting on LinkedIn for a Senior Director and in previous years, I had done freelance work for CSA, so I was familiar with the company. I decided to apply for the position and the rest is history!

Interviewer: What is the best part of your job?

Lisa: Working with the team we have here at CSA. They are an outstanding group of people who are all very dedicated to providing the highest quality for our clients; people who are kind, supportive, and respectful to work with. 

Interviewer: What do you wish people knew about your work at CSA?

Lisa: I would say that I wish people knew about the wide variety of projects that I am involved with on a daily basis. There is a lot of multi-tasking and switching from one project to another.

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!
