The Voice of Wakefield High School

Lisa Twitty


Q: How long have you been teaching?

A:  I started subbing in 1985 through 1991 and jumped back in in 2007 – 2021 and taught art and substituted.

Q:  What do you teach here at Wakefield High School?

A:  I am teaching ICR, a co-teacher position, and the content is math.

Q: What made you want to become a math or art teacher?

A:  I didn’t dream of being a teacher but I had art skills. I sort of had a spiritual experience so I thought about things differently. This made me want to start helping others.

Q:  What did you do before Wakefield?

A:  I have been substitute teaching since 2007. 

Q:  What do you like most about Wakefield High School?

A:  The loyalty people have and how students and staff support one another.

Q:  What did you do for fun in high school?

A:  I liked to read and did a lot of school activities like student council, gymnastics, and track.

Q:  What type of music do you like?

A:  I like different kinds but my favorite is Christian and piano music.

Q:  What are your hobbies outside of school?

A:  Our time when we get older is taken away by responsibilities but I like gardening, cooking, and coming up with new recipes.

Q: What would you do if you weren’t a teacher?

A:  I look at painting and drawing differently now, how I look at the world from an artist’s perspective. I think I would try to get back into that, even though I’d probably do something else for money.

Q:  What do you want your students to take away from you and your class?

A:  I want them to know that their life is important to me, and I want them to embrace their life as being important. Even if the subject I teach is not your favorite, there’s something in it that can still be helpful.
