Hello! My name is Lisa Price. I am fortunate to be a part of the wonderful staff here at Washington Elementary School. I have been teaching in Omaha Public Schools for twenty-three years. This will be my tenth year at Washington Elementary.
I am a Nebraska girl at heart. My roots began in a small town where I grew up with three sisters, one brother and amazing parents in Columbus, Nebraska. After high school, I moved to Kearney, Nebraska where I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education from the University of Nebraska at Kearney. After graduation, I wanted to see what life was like in the big city and moved to Omaha. I began my career with Omaha Public Schools and fell in love with the greatest job on Earth, teaching. I always knew I wanted to be a teacher; but I had no idea how much satisfaction would come from watching students learn, grow and achieve to their highest potential. It wasn’t long before I met my wonderful husband and had two marvelous children.
In 1997, I received my Master’s Degree in Elementary Education from the University of Nebraska at Omaha. I believe learning is a life-long process. I want to pass my love of learning and appreciation for education on to my students.
