Elementary Teacher of the Year Lilli Wisler Makes Her Mark at Barron Elementary School

Now in her eighth year of teaching, Ms. Wisler is an academic specialist who works with students and teachers throughout grade levels at Barron. "My main goals this year are to see the good things going on in classrooms and to share ideas with others. I'm a huge fan of collaboration. Things are better when you have more brains working on them," said Lilli. Learn more about Lilli and her leadership at Barron Elementary School in this new district video video (00:6:46).
