About Lisa Girten


     My name is Lisa Girten.  I am a teacher of 24 years.  I became a teacher because I wanted to make a difference.  I love my job and enjoy the children so much.  I graduated from Afton High School.  I got my Associate degree from NEO A&M college in Miami, Oklahoma.  I recieved my Bachelors degree from Northeastern State University in Tahlequah, Oklahoma.  Aka.  Gods Country!   I have a Reading Recovery Certification from Texas Womens University.  Reading is my passion!  

     I am married to Jim Girten and together we have four children.  Justin who lives in Tulsa, Abby who lives in Pryor, Kendall lives here in Coalgate, and Maurica in Coalgate also. I have one God  Daughter, Danielle Bauer and she lives in Grove, Oklahoma.  We have 8 grandchildren.  Wow! 

    I love to be outside all I can, and any activity with my family.  I have a wonderful family and enjoy every minute with them.  I have been very blessed in my life and feel very fortunate to have the people surrounding me that I do!

    I believe each child on this earth has the right and should have the opportunity to learn.  I believe all learn in a different way and it is my job as an educator to find that way. A child is our most precious resource and we have a responsibility to expand on that as educators.  I love my job and I love my students.  I treat them as if they are mine and look out for each of their interest. 

    I want to approach each day as if it is my first one to step in the door.  I never want to become comfortable  so I always look for ways to improve my teaching.  I am never scared to try new things in the classroom.  Some will fail but we will have learned from it.  I believe we should have a good time while we learn and grow!
