Lisa Roark is passionate about helping students understand themselves in order to reach their God-given potential. She graduated from Tarleton State University in 1997 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Human Science Education and in 2001 completed her Master of Education Degree in Counseling. Shortly after graduation, Lisa became a Licensed Professional Counselor. Her initial teaching experience was acquired within the public school before becoming a school career and college guidance counselor and opening a private counseling practice focusing on child and family counseling. Upon the birth of her children, Lisa continued using her teaching skills in the education of her own children and in small classroom settings in the homeschool community.
Lisa is a creative teacher who works to bring joy into the classroom and to motivate students to achieve success. She enjoys utilizing her knowledge and skills to create an environment where students are challenged, encouraged, and motivated to strive for excellence. Her experience in the counseling and psychology field has not only provided her with content-area proficiency, but it has also given her experience in working with people of different aptitudes and skill sets.
Integrating a biblical worldview into all facets of her interaction with students is something Lisa finds extremely important. She believes each student and family is uniquely created by God and, therefore, designed to follow a pathway that is uniquely theirs. She works hard to encourage students and families that are evaluating educational goals and achievements to consider this uniqueness as the gift it truly is.
Lisa lives on a ranch in Southwest Texas near the Texas-Mexico border with her husband and their two teenage sons. She enjoys outdoor activities such as hiking, fishing, and camping. Reading, traveling with her family, and taking her sons to competitive sporting clay shoots throughout the United States are also things she enjoys.
