Lisa Bales is part of the St. Joseph Kindergarten Team! She began her teaching career in 1998 as a preschool teacher. She has taught Kindergarten, 2nd grade, ESL Kindergarten, and 1st- 5th grade ESL. Lisa is blessed to now call St. Joseph School her home. She holds a Bachelor's degree in Early Childhood Education and Elementary Education, an endorsement in ESL, and a Master’s Degree in Curriculum and Instruction but knows it is the 100s of kids who have passed through her classroom doors that have truly taught her about education. At St. Joseph School, Lisa loves to watch her students learn and grow closer to God!

Lisa loves to read, travel, and spend time in the great outdoors. She plans to travel to all 50 states with her husband Dwain and her daughter Magdalena, and they only have a few more to go!
