Lisa Siegle


My name is Ms. Lisa Siegle, and I am a 5th grade Language Arts teacher at East Union Intermediate Center.  I have been teaching at Deer Lakes since 2005.  Prior to teaching  5th grade, I taught Kindergarten, Family and Consumer Science, and I monitored the In-School Suspension room at the middle school.
I chose to be a teacher because I enjoy the everyday interaction with the students.  I find it very rewarding to watch the growth of each student academically, socially, and emotionally.  If I can in some small way help the student become all they are meant to be and achieve all they hope to in their lives, then I consider myself a very lucky person.

Welcome back to another great start to the new school year.  This year Mr. Brough and I will be switching classes.  I will be the Language Arts teacher and Mr. Brough will be teaching Math, Science, and Social Studies.  I am looking forward to meeting you, but more importantly, truly getting to know you throughout the school year!

Suggested Supplies:

These items are to cover all subjects in my room and Mr. Brough's room.

  • 2 " binder  (preferably zipper closure binder)
