Mrs. Lisa Hackett
I have been a part of the Oak Grove Family as a Special Education Teacher since this school opened in July of 1995 and have enjoyed every new school year!
I was born in Burbank California and lived there until I was 8 yrs. old. I went to a year-round school from Kindergarten through second grade. (yes they did have year-round schools that long ago). My family moved to Florida when I was 8 yrs. old. When I was 11 yrs. old we moved to upstate New York where I completed school. I earned my Bachelor's degree in Special education at Plattsburgh State University in New York. My first year of teaching was in a small school in New York CCR grades 7th-12th. After I was married I moved to Worcester Massachusetts and taught CCR grades 7th-12th. We then moved to Raleigh where all three of my children were born. All of them attended Oak Grove. In 2005 I earned my National Board Teaching Certification. In 2010 I completed my Master's Degree in Special Education. And....the story goes on!!!
