My name is Lisa Hawkins and I teach third grade. This is my second year teaching here at LEAD. My favorite part about teaching at LEAD is having the opportunity to be part of such a warm and welcoming community full of parents, students, and colleagues that inspire me daily. In my spare time I love traveling, going to Giants games, hiking, and spending time with my family and friends.
