Meet Our Homeschool Educators

Lisa Duffin

I have worked with students at the elementary level in many different capacities over the years. I have been a classroom teacher,  tutored students, taught summer camps, and helped with reading interventions. I very much enjoy helping students become excited about learning and finding things that inspire them to become their best selves. At home I like spending time with my 1 year old daughter and husband, running, playing outdoors and traveling.

I am excited to re-enter the world of teaching in a new way and at such a fun place! I have 10 years of experience in Elementary Education. I earned my Bachelor's degree in NC and my Master's here in TN, where I have lived for 24 years now. But, I grew up in Michigan. I love Knoxville and enjoy spending time at the lake with my family - we have a 13 year old son and a 7 year old daughter.
