Lisa Hanifan

First Grade Teacher

I have been a first grade teacher in Massachusetts for 18 years. I am a Teach Plus Fellow alumnae, a Department of Elementary and Secondary Education CURATE Fellow, a member of the Commissioner’s Teacher Advisory Cabinet, and a member of the Reimagining Diverse and Equitable Schools Team. I hold a license in special education, elementary education, and school administration, and as a reading specialist. Most recently, I completed a certificate in early education leadership through the Zaentz Professional Learning Academy at the Harvard Graduate School of Education.
