"I had the privilege of working with Lisa for over four years and can confidently say I left our professional relationship a better leader, communicator, and more passionate 'helper' because of the model she set forth. She is a life-long learner who is committed to being the best leader, listener, and communicator for the people in her work environment. "
"I have had the opportunity to both listen to Lisa Parry speak and get to know her. She speaks from a vantage point of loads of experience in education as both a teacher and an administrator. The credibility alone warrants your attention, but when you mix in her unique brand of humor, you'll find yourself laughing and learning. A good speaker, a good person, a good listen!"
"Lisa leveraged the shared experience of K12 education to speak with a group of ediately at ease and ready to hear the bigger message. Lisa’s message, delivered with skillfully placed stories and humor, is timely and relevant for audiences of all types from all industries. We all left feeling empowered, uplifted and curious about how to learn more. We will absolutely have Lisa back again next year!"
Feedback following presentations I delivered to teachers in years 3-5 of their careers:
"Lisa Parry is a treasure! I feel a lot of time with BIG education, the jargon is overwhelming, but I never felt that way after a lesson from Mrs. Parry. I came away with page after page of notes every time I got to hear or see her speak. There are so many things that I took from her that I know are real-life things she has either been through or strategies that she has used that I took to my own classroom and the culture around me. I would encourage any and all new teachers to take part in this program."
"I won’t forget when Lisa Parry talked about giving some to take some, especially regarding families, and how she spoke about the way a 20-minute hard conversation can save a lot of headaches for the school year."
"I got a lot of helpful ideas for communicating with families and students. Lisa Parry’s presentations were especially helpful for this!"
"...not being afraid to communicate. Nothing improves if you keep it to yourself. Say what needs to be said even if it’s not easy. As Lisa would say, “20 tough minutes is worth 170 days of peace.”
