Biographical Information

Third-grade teacher Lisa Stanton uses state-of-the-art technology, humor and current instructional strategies to keep the joy of learning alive at Pioneer Elementary School in Auburn. She has brought many effective programs to the school, including an individualized math fact program that has students doing triple-digit multiplication as early as the second grade. Ms. Stanton's students also perform well in reading, despite the high percentage of English Language Learner (ELL) students at the school. As a member of the district's Goal II Math Committee, she has worked to develop the math curriculum and align it with grade-level expectations. Ms. Stanton is National Board Certified, and has been instrumental in leading several teachers through the certification process. She conducts numerous in-service workshops and classroom demonstrations, and videotapes professional development sessions, sharing them with other buildings on DVD. Many students have told her that because of the impact she has had on them, they aspire to be teachers. That's one kind of multiplication the world could use more of.
