Hello! My name is Lisa Hern, and this is my 15th year of teaching music at Harrisonville Elementary School. I have been teaching music to students of all ages for more than 23 years now through public schools, private studio, and church. I recently completed a Masters of Arts degree in music education from the University of Central Missouri. I have a Bachelors of Science degree in vocal music education grades K-12 from William Jewell College. I have certification in both the Orff and Kodaly methods of music education. My husband of 24 years is James; I have two sons, Tyler and Landon, and a dog named Molly. I was honored a few years ago to have been nominated as a Harrisonville Educator of the Year Finalist and have also had the privilege of receiving other numerous teaching awards. Besides spending my time instilling a love for making music in my students, I also enjoy spending time with my family, serving at my church, and developing my own musicianship. I am so thankful to have such an exciting and rewarding job!
