Hi, I am Lisa Thurmond. This is my third year teaching at Sojourn Academy. I consider it an honor to be a part of this wonderful school and it is a privilege to spend time with your children. I graduated from Wade College in Dallas where I studied fashion and interior design. I have been married to my husband Jay for 24 years. We have three children. Shelby is studying to become a teacher at Sam Houston State University; Sydney is at Oklahoma Baptist University to study Forensic Biology; and our son Sawyer is at Tom Cox in the 6th Grade.
I worked in the international trade industry until I had my children and took time off to be with them. I have taught Pre-K at Spring Baptist Church and Gateway Baptist for 8 years and have been a substitute teacher for Conroe ISD for the past 6 years. I have been a Sunday School teacher in the Pre-K, 3rd grade, and 5th grade groups for 15 years and have been a teacher in the Awana program for the past 23 years.
I enjoy spending time outdoors with my family and nature. My pastimes are photography and treasure hunting at flea markets and antique stores. I have a dog, a cat, a cockatiel, and 4 chickens.
I am super excited about art class this year. I welcome any donations of art/craft supplies to the art room (paint, yarn, paper, etc.). Please feel free to contact me anytime.
