Ms. Lisa Perry
Before pursuing her Master's’ degree and teaching certificate, Ms. Perry spent many hours volunteering at local parks giving trail tours for children and adults; helping with courses in sustainable gardening, wildflowers, trees, and wildlife; fighting the never-ending battle against non-native invasive species; and directing a summer camp for Environmental Education. It was, in fact, these experiences that led her to become an educator. She works to incorporate the concept of sustainability and environmental responsibility into every unit of her standards-based 7th Grade Science class, and is proud to use her global outlook to help her students recognize that they are able to make a difference in the world by making a difference in their communities.
Ms. Perry is the facilitator of both the Recycling and Environmental Action Clubs at Sneed Middle School, and she serves as Executive Director for Keep Florence Beautiful. In 2015, she received her National Board certification and was named Environmental Educator of the Year by the Environmental Education Association of South Carolina.
