Mrs. Lisa Gill

Hello! My name is Lisa Gill and I have been teaching third grade at Athens Elementary since 2016. I am so thankful for the opportunity to be your child's teacher. My goal is to help every one of my students be successful. I will do my very best to make learning fun and exciting for your child. I received my BS Degree from Athens State University. I enjoy teaching and I look forward to getting to know your child this year. I decided to teach because I was inspired by some amazing teachers I had growing up. I think every child deserves someone who supports them, will never give up on them, and pushes them to be the best they can be.

Athens has always been my home. I graduated from Tanner High School, attended the University of Alabama Huntsville, received an Associate Degree from Calhoun College, and a Bachelor of Science Degree in Elementary Education from Athens State University. My husband, Kenneth, and I have one son, Kendall, who attends Athens Middle School. We've been married for more than 20 years. Our family attends church at the New Hopewell Missionary Baptist Church, where I teach Children's Church and work with the youth. 

When I'm not teaching or working in my classroom I like to relax and have fun. Some of my hobbies are dining out, shopping, cooking, working out, watching college football (Roll Tide), and spending time with my family and friends.
