LISA SPALDING

Teacher - 4th Grade

Lisa is delighted to become a part of the FernLeaf community. She's especially excited to work with fourth graders! Lisa grew up in Winter Park, FL and moved to Raleigh, NC in 1990. She's been an educator for 34 years teaching elementary school for 15 years in multiple grades and then becoming an administrator. Lisa served as an Assistant Principal and Principal for 19 years. She recently retired from Wake County Public Schools to pursue the dream of living in the mountains. She knew she was not finished with her career in teaching so when I found FernLeaf, I knew it was a wonderful fit since she loves the philosophy, vision and mission.

In her spare time she loves the mountains and the huge variety of hiking areas and other outdoor activities available in our area. She enjoys working in the yard and playing with her dog, Carter. She is a huge sports fan particularly when it comes to the NCSU Wolfpack! She's just so excited to be at Fernleaf!!!!
