Ms. Lisa O'Neill
Welcome to 4th grade! I'm so excited to start a new journey this year in 4th grade here are Ridgeview Elementary! I graduated from the University of North Texas in 2011 (Go Mean Green) and taught for 5 years in another district prior to joining NEISD. I have taught 3rd and 4th grade in addition to teaching 2nd grade for the last 6 years. I am very dedicated to my profession and have very high expectations for myself as a teacher and for my students as learners.
My goal as a teacher is to create a safe and fun learning enviornment for all learners to be successful. I want to instill a lifelong love of learning in all of my students so that they may continue to develop their learning and interests long after they leave my classroom. In addition to supporting their social, emotional, and academic growth, it is very important to me to build a strong classroom community in which we encourage and support each other in our decision making, problem solving, and overall learning process.
I look forward to working with a new group of students, seeing some some familiar faces, and watching them grow over the course of the year. Parents, please know that my door is always open and I welcome your collaboration and feedback in any way. Together, we can accomplish more than alone! Please join our Class Dojo where you can stay up to date with your child's day-to-day acheivements, see fun photos of their learning, as well as communicate with me through the messaging component.
Looking forward to a great 2019-2020 school year at Ridgeview...Go Rockets!!
