Miss Lisa Curran
I was born and raised in Lake County, Illinois. I went to Cornell College in Mount Vernon, Iowa, and graduated with a dual degree in secondary education and mathematics. I have graduate degrees in Field-Based Teaching and Leadership from Saint Xavier University and Education Technology from Concordia University.
I began teaching math in 1999 at Central Junior High School in Zion, IL. I taught five years of Pre-Algebra and Algebra Honors in Zion. In 2004 I made the move to teaching high school and joined the Panthers at Round Lake Senior High School. I have taught Pre-Algebra, Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Algebra 2 Honors, Geometry Honors, Math 2, Math 2 Prep, Math 2 Support, College Algebra and College Algebra Honors in my time at RLHS.
When I'm not teaching or planning, I spend time with my family and friends, and I run a small online jewelry business.
Khan Academy offers a wide variety of math videos and practice problem sets for students who are looking for some additional support for the concepts being taught in class.
This is a great website for looking up specific topics that students may be struggling with.
