Winton Woods Middle School (WWMS) teacher Lisa Giblin is a teacher whose positive leadership and dedication extend far beyond her classroom. “This year alone, she has used her creativity to collaborate on course offerings and programs, and is part of our equity team,” said WWMS Principal Doug Sanker. “She has excellent relationships with both staff and students, which is evident in the way she is able to motivate both groups in being the best Warriors possible.”
Giblin is known to give her time and use her gifts to help others. “She is an excellent communicator in multiple languages,” said Sanker. “She makes herself available to help translate academic materials, parent contacts, and a variety of other needs and requests. We are incredibly proud to have Mrs. Giblin at WWMS as a part of our Warrior team.”
