Lisa has also worked with a range of children as a tutor in Porirua,Wellington,  New Zealand and has had recent experience homeschooling her own child.  

Lisa believes in life long learning and has been learning Te Reo Māori which has helped her again think about what learning is and how to make Montessori more inclusive.
