Sixth grade teacher Britney Lisee – the Teacher of the Year for Dual Language & Arts Magnet Middle School – found her motivation to teach from her fourth-grade teacher.

“I wanted, like her, to motivate and encourage children to do their best and make a positive change in our world,” Lisee said.

She has lived up to the example that her teacher se. As the result of her dedication, energy, and passion, Lisee’s peers nominated her for DLAMMS’s honor. She is now a candidate for LEARN Teacher of the Year, which will be announced at the organization’s Convocation on Monday, Aug. 27.

Lisee is from Pittsburgh, Penn. and has been teaching for four years. Her favorite memories come from seeing her students’ faces while presenting their work. “All of the hard work and effort comes together in those three to five minutes as their face shines with pride and their confidence boosts while teaching others what they learned.”

Here’s some more about Britney.

What is a fun fact about you?

I was a cheerleader in grade school and high school, but when I went to college, being a small school, they didn’t have a cheerleading squad. I gathered a group of interested girls and we started a team. It’s been running ever since! Go Becker!

What is one of your hidden talents?

I think I’m great at karaoke, but when I asked my husband, he told me, “you are an incredibly determined person and failure is never an option.” So I’ll out these together and take singing lessons!

How do you spend your summer vacation?

Traveling with my family, either to local or destination beaches.

What inspires you as a teacher?

My students. I truly learn the most from them.

If you could give your students any life advice, what would it be?

My life advice would be to work hard, but have fun. Asking questions and solving problems can get you so many places in life, but it is also going to bring challenges and opportunities to take risks – accept them and persevere, you will be happy and proud of the results. Along the way, find what makes you laugh and surround yourself with the people who and take every opportunity to do good and be kind; every person, no matter how young or old, has the ability to accomplish this.
