Congratulations to our 2021-22 TEACHER of the YEAR Lisa Sprofera!!!!
Ms. Sprofera is a highly respected teacher at Green Hills School. Her first grade classroom is warm and inviting for all of her students. She never misses an opportunity for a teachable moment, her lessons are creative and effective. Ms. Sprofera has a wonderful rapport with her students, who respect her immensely. During the 2020-2021 pandemic school year, Ms. Sprofera continued her excellence in reaching students on all levels. One parent said, “It is with the sincerest of sentiment that I state she was the glue that held this class together, kept learning alive, successful, and on track.” She truly wants every child to be the best that they can be.
Collegially Ms. Sprofera is a veteran leader among her colleagues. Many on staff look to her for guidance. If any teacher needs anything, she is there. Oftentimes teachers are overheard saying, “Go ask Lisa. She will know.” She is irreplaceable!
