Lisa Moore, a Baton Rouge native, is a first grade teacher at St. Aloysius Catholic School in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. She received her Bachelor in Education from the Louisiana State University and has taught for over 20 years.
As an instructor at St. Aloysius School, she serves on the math textbook selection committee, social committee and community committee. Lisa helps organize a drive that benefits Sweet Dreams, a program benefiting the Bishop Ott Shelter for Women and Children. She has also developed lesson plans for Playmakers (a Professional Theater for Young Children).
Outside of school, Lisa is a Junior League of Baton Rouge Sustaining Advisor and volunteers with the Baton Rouge Symphony League. In addition to this, Lisa is on a USTA tennis team.
We would like to thank Lisa for sharing her summer camp journal she created for her class. Lisa has a class pet bearded dragon, named Spike, and allows her students to take him home over the summer for a week each. During that week the students are tasked with filling out Spike's summer camp journal documenting what he does and how he acts throughout the week.
Her knowledge and desire to expand young minds helped her create this journal in hopes to inspire kids to observe, document, and learn over the summer. Her journal has also inspired us to create some journals for other animals such as: anole, crested gecko, pacman frog, turtle, and tortoise. We hope that teachers use these journals to teach children responsibility, how to observe, and how to learn from nature.
