Lisa Highfill is one of the best teachers my son has had the opportunity to have. The article that discussed her "flipped learning" is only a small piece of what she has contributed to the education of my son and all the others that she's taught. She is a true 21st century teacher. PUSD needs more teachers like her. People who don't know her don't know what a great asset we have in our district. There's just enough positive things I can say about her. She truly deserves the Nobel Peace Prize for Education. I usually don't add comments but had to when I saw Lisa's name in this article.
