4th: Lisa Rand

Though Ms. Lisa has been teaching for nine years, Progressive School has been very fortunate to have her for five, where she has taught 6th and 3rd grades. After receiving her Master’s in Literacy (birth-6th), Lisa taught in upstate New York and Queens. She was also a Literacy instructor at the Saltzman Clinic at Hofstra University. She currently teaches science, reading, and writing.

Ms. Lisa is a horse and dog lover. Though she no longer has horses of her own, she has a very well-maintained Italian Greyhound. She is also the mom of a 27-year-old son and 24-year-old daughter.

Making jewelry is one of her favorite pastimes. Lisa also thoroughly enjoys biking, camping, nature, movies, books, and live music. Enjoying the little things is something Lisa never misses an opportunity to do.
