Mrs. Lisa Sturgeon

Hi! My name is Lisa Sturgeon, and it is my 6th year as a CARES teacher at JJL!  I am excited to work here! I have been teaching for 19 years, with my previous 11 years teaching in Oswego.   I have my BA in Special Education from the University of St. Francis in Joliet, and my Master's degree, also in Special Education, from Governors State University.  I have been married to my husband Dave, for going on 16 years now. We have two wonderful children, one in 6th grade and one in 3rd grade. It is because of these two that I am well versed in all things Pokémon, Minecraft, Fortnite, XBox games, Nintendo Switch games, and anime.  I love to read, travel, and buy teaching supplies!
I am looking forward to working at JJL again this year, and collaborating with others to learn new things to be the best that I can be!
