My name is Lisa Serpe-Becker (Mrs.Becker). I am a Reading Teacher (grades 2-5 ) and Reading Interventionist at Grewenow Elementary. I have been at Grewenow for 10 years and with the KUSD District 1 for 14 years. I earned my WI. Teacher License (2002) and 316 Reading Teacher License (2014). I am a proud mother of two, Hunter 19 and Kaitlyn 16. My husband Dan is a Kenosha businessman and basketball coach. I have 4 cats ( 2 of my own and 2 fosters). I volunteer at Kindred Kitties -a no -kill animal shelter, Crossroads Kids-Brass Elementary and United Way Tutoring Summer Program – McKinley. My hobbies are reading, visiting the beach, gardening, decorating inside and out and dining with my family /friends.
I private tutor at my home office in the summer -reading fluency, comprehension and writing workshops. Teaching is my passion. I can’t imagine working in any other field. At Grewenow, I teach reading fluency, phonics, comprehension and writing strategies / skills. My goal is to facilitate and support students to feel successful and happy, guiding them to reach upward and maintain grade level expectancy or higher. My hope is to help each student feel happy, comfortable and safe . After that, we make learning fun. We use visuals and hands on activities, paired with our Leveled Literacy Intervention resources and books, to learn the skills and strategies needed to be a successful reader and writer. I look forward to this new 2017-18 school year . Reach high, do your very best and never give up!
