Lisa VanderVen | First Grade send email


Hello! This is my first-year teaching at Carlisle Christian Academy, I am very excited and blessed to be a part of CCA. I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education from Iona College in New Rochelle, NY.  I was privileged to teach fourth and first grade.  After careful prayer, I decided to take time off to raise my children.   I live in Boiling Springs with my husband, Matt and four sons Parker (16), Preston (13), Logan (9), and Joshua (6).  I love spending time with my family.  In my free time I enjoy swimming, cooking, and watching our kids play soccer.  

I enjoy being a pastors wife and coordinator of children’s and women’s ministries at Calvary Chapel Harrisburg in Shiremanstown.  I have many Bible verses that I love, but the verse that was handpicked for me from God is: Joshua 1:9 – “Have I not commanded you?  Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”

I am looking forward to the upcoming school year and very grateful to be part of such a loving and amazing team at CCA.
