Highlands Welcomes Ms. Lisette Barton, World Traveler and Secondary Math Teacher
Highlands Christian Academy is pleased to welcome Ms. Lisette Barton as a junior high and high school math teacher for the 2019-2020 school year!
Originally from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Ms. Barton earned her Bachelor’s Degree in Mathematics from University of Central Florida and her Master’s of Education in Physical Education from Canisius College, New York. She also studied Spanish at Georgia Perimeter College.
She has taught many different subjects throughout her career including world languages, which is no surprise, considering she lived in Europe for several years and has participated in approximately thirty missions and educational trips abroad to Europe, Central America, South America, Puerto Rico, St. Croix, Cuba, and Haiti. “I thrive on travel and spreading the love and grace that Christ has for us,” Lisette shares.
Lisette speaks Italian and some Spanish, and knows basic greetings and words in five other languages. She enjoys learning about new cultures, participating in individual and team sports, and completed the Mud Titan Run this past May in Tampa. She enjoys making new friends, exploring new restaurants, and especially looks forward to meeting each of us at Highlands and Grace. She says she is honored to be surrounded by like-minded people and “being a part of and growing with this new Christian family.”
Welcome to Grace Church and Highlands Christian Academy, Ms. Barton. We are so glad you’ll be joining us and know your students will be blessed to hear about your passions, your travels, and your love for Jesus Christ!
