My name is Lisa Keyes and I am so happy to be working with such great students and staff here at C.S. Porter. This is my fifth year at Porter and my first year teaching exploratories; so far I love it! Nothing beats being in the classroom instructing and engaging with students again. I am teaching Personal Finance (8th grade), Medical Detectives -PLTW (7th grade) and Computer Applications (6th grade).
Originally from Massachusetts, I have been living out west for the last 20+ years, spending time in Missoula in the early-mid 90's, then living and teaching in Oregon and California. My husband, two sons, and I returned to Missoula in 2007 and enjoy all that Montana has to offer. I love to read, swim, run, travel, learn languages, and spend time with my family and friends! I spent 3 years in Japan in the 90's and a few years ago experienced a semester of adventure living in Guatemala and traveling throughout Central America with my family during my husband's sabbatical.
My experience teaching varies greatly and includes elementary, middle school, and even some time at the high school level. I also had the opportunity to teach middle school Spanish for 3 years which was a lot of fun and have worked as a teacher librarian for the last 8 years.
