Mrs. Lisa Neyens
Hello! My name is Lisa Neyens and I love teaching Kindergarten! I've been teaching over 20 years, and John Muir Elementary has been my home for over 15 of those years. Previous to Muir Elementary, I taught at Nimitz Elementary (Cupertino School District) for 4 years and at Valencia Valley (Newhall School District) for 2 years.
I was born and raised in Toronto, Canada, and earned my Bachelors of Science and Bachelors of Education at the University of Toronto. I grew up with a traditional Chinese background, and have 1 younger sister who is a middle school teacher. My entire family still live in my home town of Toronto. My husband Ron and I have been married over 10 years, and our son Ian was a student at John Muir. I have always wanted to be a primary school teacher and am so excited each year to be living my dream. I believe in a positive, child centered learning environment that supports children in building their self-confidence; in modeling the acceptance of diverse ideas; and preparing children for a rapidly changing world.
In my spare time, I love doing things in and around the Bay Area with my family, surfing the internet for new ideas for the classroom, jigsaw puzzles, going to zumba, listening to music, and my favorite of all....SHOPPING!!!
I look forward to spending the school year with your child - learning about them, sharing with them, and growing with them!
