My name is Lisa Jacobs and I am one of the 5th grade teachers at Trinity Elementary West. The school year 2016-2017 marks a return to teaching for me and I am very excited for that! Recently I retired from childcare in my home after almost 17 years where I enjoyed working and caring for the little ones. Coming back into teaching is a big change for my whole family, but one we look forward to. I received my Bachelor of Science degree in elementary education from Moorhead State University. I taught three years prior to starting childcare in my home: one year at Midway Public School near Grand Forks in a 2nd grade classroom; and two years at St. Mary's School in Richardton in 3rd/4th and 5th/6th grade classrooms. My husband, Jason, and I have five children- Phillip, James, Thomas, Andrew, and Elizabeth and they all attend Dickinson Catholic Schools. In my spare time I enjoy scrapbooking.
