A Greensville County High School graduate, Lisa Anderson earned her Associate of Arts and Sciences in Education from Southside Virginia Community College. After completing the degree at SVCC, she transferred to St. Paul’s College, finishing her Bachelor’s degree with honors. After graduation, she began teaching third grade.
Lisa credits SVCC for serving as a firm foundation for her teaching career. “SVCC allowed me the ‘luxury’ of working a full time job and taking care of my three children and household while I pursued my dream of a college education. The large variety of online and on- site classes allowed me to take several classes at a time and finish my degree in a timely manner.” She found the professors and SVCC staff to be always helpful and encouraging. Lisa also enjoyed making lifelong friends during her time at SVCC and being an equal in the classroom with people of different ages, backgrounds, and goals.
Lisa is currently employed at Greensville Elementary School, where she was named Teacher Assistant of the year in 2007.
