Inspire Awards

Lisa Kollbaum

Pershing Elementary
Music & Computer Science Teacher
Nominated By: Principal Jamie Cook

Lisa is an absolute inspiration. She shows up every single day with a smile and positive attitude. Her teaching is engaging and exciting and students always leave music better than when they arrived. She uses her passion of music and singing to inspire students to dream big. Lisa has been a major impact on our staff always, but especially this year. She motivates staff with her positivity, encouraging words, and messages of hope. She has had a profound impact on our staff, students and the community and is always willing to do what it takes for our students. I am so proud of Lisa and how she has helped our building teach and learn through a pandemic. She has consistently remained positive and hopeful - she is truly living out her life's work.
