Hello, my name is Lisa Schaeffer and I am so excited to be teaching first grade at Riffenburgh Elementary this year! I have spent the past 14 years in the Adams 12 School district, teaching first grade for 9 years, and instructional coaching for the past 5 years.
Supporting students as they ask questions, seek answers, and become advocates for their own learning.
Too many to pick just one! But I love author's that provide the opportunity for engaging character voices such as Mo Willems.
Worcester, MA to Wooster, Ohio then Broomfield, CO to Fort Collins!
I love seeking out adventures both inside the classroom and out. When I am not at school, you will find me with my husband and two boys running, hiking, skiing, and traveling.
At Riffenburgh, I love the beliefs and structures of the IB model that guide students to be well-rounded global thinkers and problem solvers. I strive to support students as they find their own passions in education and learn to be advocates for themselves and others.
