Lisa Webb did not know she wanted to teach when she first started to look for a career. Webb landed a job in a nursing home which led her to where life all began.  

 

“When I was in college I was working in a nursing home. There were disabled residents, so it inspired me to become a teacher for special [education],” said Mrs. Webb.

 

She first wanted to be a Geriatric Dietitian while attending Fontbonne University, but she elected a career in education and transferred to Webster University.  

 

Mrs. Webb attend Catholic elementary and middle schools, but she said her interest in education was sparked when she attended public high school.

 

“The teachers were just more engaging,” said Mrs. Webb.

 

Her favorite activities are driving her two sons to attend hockey and soccer games and practices, but she likes hockey a bit more.  Her favorite subject in school is math.

 

Mrs. Webb encourages her students to take academic risks.  She said, “Never be afraid to ask for help.  You don’t have to do everything on your own.”
