Mrs. Lisa Kirkpatrick

I received my Bachelor of Science from Appalachian State University. After a short time as a high school English teacher, I decided that I wanted to play more and returned to graduate school. I received a Master of Science from the University of South Carolina in Early Childhood. Twenty-four years later, I am still dancing, singing, and loving Kindergarten. Teaching Kindergarten has changed a lot since I started, but one thing remains the same, children love to learn, especially when that learning includes a lot of singing, dancing, and playing.
