Jean De Lisle



I received my training at Lesley University in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

I graduated with a B.A. degree in Elementary and Special Education in 1978, and feel this experience helped prepare me for my present employment at Newport Grammar School.

I have completed my Master's of Curriculum and Instruction at Western Governor's University and graduated on September 23, 2016.


 At Newport Grammar School, I have spent my 7 years here in the Special Education Department.  The first year I worked as an Inclusion teacher, and  for the remaining 6 years I have served in the Extended Resource Classroom (teaching grades 3-8 as students have been sent my way). I now feel grateful to serve children in the first grade.  This is my 5th year here and am very excited to watch them learn and grow!

I consider it a joy and privilege to be a teacher here at Newport Grammar School.
