About Ms. Wontor
Hello! My name is Lisa Wontor. This is my eighth year teaching at Cerritos, and I love working at such a wonderful school with an awesome community. I spent six years teaching fifth grade, and this will be my second year teaching fourth grade. I feel very confident in knowing what skills upper elementary students need.
I attended both elementary school and middle school in the Kyrene School District and graduated from Corona del Sol High School in Tempe. In 2013, I graduated from Arizona State University with my bachelor's degree in Elementary Education and a minor in English Linguistics. I also graduated from Barrett, the Honors College at ASU after completing a thesis project studying the presence of figurative language in children's books. Go Sun Devils!
In my free time, I enjoy shopping, reading, traveling, going to concerts, hiking, and spending time with my fiancé, friends & family. I am an enthusiastic lifelong learner, and I hope to instill my love of learning in my students while holding them to high expectations. I look forward to having a terrific school year (though it may look different than what we are used to) by being flexible and keeping a positive attitude!
