Lisa Heavner | First Grade Teacher send email

Heavner 2I am excited to teach first grade at Carlisle Christian Academy.  This is my sixth year at CCA although not consecutively.  I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education from the University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown in 1985.  I taught fourth and fifth grades combined for one year.  Then, I substituted in various schools for about 18 years as I raised my children, Brent and Brittany.  When I began at CCA, I taught fifth grade for five years, and then I took a few years off as I assisted with my three grandchildren, Levi, Audrey, and Noah.

I am actively involved in youth group and children’s ministries at my home church, Hope Grace Brethren in Dillsburg.  I have traveled with the youth group to many youth conferences across the country.  Also, my husband and I have been a part of mission’s teams to Canada and Belize.

In my free time (if there is such a thing :)), I enjoy reading, hiking, and vacationing at the beach.  I also love to spend time with my husband, children and their spouses, and my three (soon to be four) grandchildren.

Two verses which have meant a lot to me over the years are:

  • Jeremiah 29:11 “For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
  • 1 Corinthians 10:31 “So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all to the glory of God.”

I know God has great plans for this school year at Carlisle Christian Academy, and I want to bring Him glory as I serve here.
