Mrs. Lisa Tisdale

My name is Lisa Tisdale and I am in my 6th year of teaching and coaching for Wolfe City ISD. I teach 7th and 8th Grade Technology Applications and coach MS Volleyball and Track. I am also the head girls track coach and assistant powerlifting coach at the high school. I have been married to my childhood sweetheart John, for 25 years and have three boys: Zachary, Joshua and Jarrett. Zach attends and plays football at Southern Nazarene University. Joshua is a Senior at WCHS, and Jarrett is an 9th grader at WCHS. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with friends and family, watching my sons compete in sports, painting inspiring murals around the schools, and a small photography business focusing on families and seniors.
