Hi! I am Lisa Hagen and I am thrilled to be a part of the Winecoff Community.  I have been an educator for the past 15 years, in classrooms, in school leadership roles as well as at the district level.  I come from an education family, my mom taught 5th grade for 32 years and my sister currently teaches 2nd grade.  I believe that when we are all working together, students thrive and grow.  I am looking forward to continuing the achievements that Winecfoff has had recently. 

I love a good puzzle and working with others to help find a solution, and can’t wait to do that with you all!  It has been my experience that listening is the key to the foundation of any relationship, and that we all have value to add.  Please know that I am here to support you, the students we work with and the families we serve. 

I was born in Denver, Colorado and moved to Buffalo, New York when I was 10. I miss many things about Colorado and New York, but the snow is not one of them😉. Luckily I get back often, my brother lives in CO and my sister lives in NY. My family and I moved to Charlotte in 2008, and we have enjoyed making Charlotte our home. When I am not at school I can be found creating in the kitchen, exploring the outdoors or reading a good book on my back porch.
