Mrs. Lisa Rigg
Hello Mann Family! This is my ninth year at Mann and my 24th year of teaching. I am one of two ESOL teachers at our school and this year I am co-teaching in kindergarten, third and fifth grades.
I earned a B.Sc in Cognitive Science from the University of Toronto, a bachelor of Education from the University of Windsor, a Masters of Education from the University of St. Joseph, an endorsement in Special Education for the Learning Disabled from OISE, and lastly, an endorsement in ESOL from the University of Missouri.
Originally from Toronto, Canada, I have lived in four different states since immigrating to the USA with my husband, David. We have two children. Heather, a recent college graduate from The University of Missouri Science and Technology, who is now working for Union Pacific Railway in Omaha, Nebraska. Davis is a senior at the same school studying computer science and engineering. Outside of education, my passions are scuba diving, hockey, hiking, singing and my adorable cats Liza and Sebastian. My teaching passion is language development. The integration of reading, writing, speaking and listening is the focus of all my lessons.
