Music that Describes Lisa

Lisa Kerestesi was nominated by Samone Monroe, a parent of a student.

"Ms. Kerestesi is a very great teacher. My daughter has been attending Flintstone since kindergarten, and I have always recognized Ms. Kerestesi's great involvement during the time before she became her teacher," explains Monroe.

Ms. Kerestesi is so patient, kind, and super genuine. She is hands-on with students, like back in the days when teachers would engage on a level with students that made them feel like family. If Ms. Kerestesi forgets something, she remembers to say sorry. The importance of accountability is very important to her, and she shares her heartedness with Flintstone. Ms. Kerestesi is always introducing and teaching ways to expand learning beyond the classroom, from science project assistance to building gardens.
