My name is Lisa Alter. This is my fifth year at NIS in Tomball ISD and I absolutely love it here! I have taught  middle school Math for eleven years; two in Fort Bend ISD, two in  Colorado Springs, CO, and seven in Humble ISD at an MYP/IB campus. I  graduated from the University of Houston - Clear Lake with a BA in  Communication. Prior to teaching, I worked in the oil & gas industry and lived in the Caribbean where I worked as  an underwater photographer. I found I was always teaching others, so I  decided to go back to school for my teaching certificate. I am truly blessed  that I have found my calling in life!
 
I have been married to my wonderful husband for eighteen years and we have a    13-year-old daughter and 11-year-old son. We moved to Tomball a few years ago  and we love it here! If we are not watching our son play soccer  or daughter doing taekwondo, we spend time together as a family.
 
I have high expectations for my students. I want my students to be respectful, come to class prepared, take ownership of  their learning and do their BEST!
 
                                             NOTHING LESS THAN YOUR HIGHEST AND BEST!
