Welcome to My Exceptional Classroom!

Hello, my name is Lisa Strahan and I am the Resource teacher at Woodrow Wilson Elementary School. This is my tenth year as an Exceptional Children's teacher and my 14th year in the teaching field. I currently work with kindergarten through fourth grade students with academic and/or emotional needs. And this coming fall we will be adding 5th grade here at Woodrow Wilson. I am also the chair person for our Multi-Tiered System of Support (MTSS) team to help all of our students succeed in the classroom as well as a member of the Positive Behavior and Support (PBIS) team.
College(s) Attended/Degrees Earned:
My undergraduate degree is a Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education from the College of St. Scholastica in Duluth, Minnesota.  I received my teacher's license in Special Education from the University of North Carolina, Charlotte and am currently seeking licensure for the Visually Impaired.

 Educational Philosophy/ Vision:
All students have the ability to learn and to achieve in all subject areas.  With time, resources, teamwork between school and home; a child can blossom into a beautiful person in society.  I hope to help all of my students to reach their full potential while they are at Woodrow Wilson Elementary School.

This is what we're doing this month:  
It is summer and what a wonderful year we have had. My students have all grown in their goals and are ready to enjoy the summer months. Remember to read over the summer, play math games and to do some writing while you are not at school. Believe it or not, the summer will go so quickly that we will be back to business in August for a new year. 

If you, as parents or caretakers, need any assistance over the summer, please contact the school and they will contact me or you can email me at
Things parents/guardians can do to help: Remember to read together with your child. Having a parent read to them and reading together shows you care and willing to work with them.  Ask questions as you read to help strengthen their understanding of the text and build their vocabulary.
Work some puzzles together, play board games, get outdoors and exercise.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.
