Mrs. Lisa Pickens

Hello, prechool families!

My name is Lisa Pickens and I am the lead preschool teacher here at Glade Creek School.  I began my journey at GCS in the fall of 2018.  I obtained an associate degree in early childhood with a special concentration in early intervention services from Surry Community College in 2013.  I graduated with honors from Appalachian State University, majoring in Birth-Kindergarten, in May of 2021.  I have a dual license in teaching birth through kindergarten and in special education.  I am a lifelong resident of Alleghany County and have worked with children and their families in our community for more than 20 years.  My husband and I are blessed to have a son and a daughter who are both hardworking, compassionate, and successful.  I love family time and going to church.  My favorite things to do are listening to iPod casts, outdoor time, and visiting with friends.  Teaching is my passion!  

My goal is to prepare our students for their future by supporting them to be successful in our classroom, our school, and our community.  I look forward to partnering with you in educating your child.   If you have any questions, just reach out!

Kind regards,

Mrs. Lisa M. Pickens, Preschool Teacher
