Subjects Taught
First Grade


I attended and graduated high school at Morristown-East High School in 1983.  


I attended Walters State Community College for my preschool certification, transferred my Associate's Degree credits to Tusculum where I received my Bachelor's Degree in Education.

I am highly qualified in PreK-3rd.


I began my education career 25 years ago. It began when I started teaching preschool children at my church. A few years later I went to Walter State and got my certification as a preschool teacher and taught preschool for 16 years. I had a desire to go back to school, get my degree, and wanting to teach first grade! So, I went back to school and got my bachelors' degree and graduated in 2012!! (You are never to old to learn and go back to school!!) I taught my first year as an interim in first grade at Union Heights. Then, God opened a door in first grade here at Fairview, and I am HOME! This is my fourth year!!!


Hi! My name is Lisa Harrison, and I am a first grade teacher here at Fairview-Marguerite! This is my third year teaching at Fairview, and I look forward to many more years to come! Go, Wildcats!! I have two wonderful children, Cory and Brittney (proud momma!) and a wife to my best friend, Billy, of 32 years. I was born and raised here in Hamblen County and attended Fairview when I was in the 5th grade. Both of my children attended here, also! One of my greatest joys is seeing my students succeed! And, with success comes a lot of hard work and dedication from myself, my students, and parents. I take my job seriously and work hard to keep my students interested in learning. The success we achieve in first grade plays a HUGE part in each student's academic life in grades to follow, and I want my students prepared and ready. I am dedicated in helping your child learn! I look so forward to having your child in my classroom and getting to know him/her!! In my spare time, I love checking out new ideas for my classroom! I am obsessed with PINTEREST!! I love reading first grade teacher blogs and the great things taking place in first grade classrooms! I enjoy reading the Bible and attending church! I love the Lord and appreciate all the blessings He has given me! And, I consider this school and the opportunity to teach your child one of my biggest blessings! I look forward to another great year of LEARNING!
