HROA Staff Highlight
Lisa Albrecht, Lead Teacher 6th - 8th Grade
Our amazing middle school teacher is the staff highlight of the week! Mrs. A is our lead teacher for grades 6th - 8th. Mrs. A has been teaching for many years, including several years as a virtual teacher. Before coming to HROA in 2020, she was the lead online teacher for Morrow County, so she has a lot of experience supporting students in the virtual learning world. Some of the other wonderful things to know about Mrs. A is that she is an accomplished woodworker and has shared this with her students during enrichment over the last few years. We are very lucky to have Mrs. A at HROA supporting our middle school students. You can meet here Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday at HROA when she is working with our middle school students. :)
