Ms. Liss’ Educational Path
St. Eugene’s (Fox Point, WI)
I wanted to be a ARTIST when I grew up.
Dominican (Whitefish Bay, WI)
I wanted to become a Kindergarten Teacher or an Art Teacher.
Post Secondary Path:
I wanted to become an Elementary Ed Teacher, so I attended UW-LaCrosse. When I student taught in the large regular education classroom, I felt myself drawn to the students needing individual help, so next I student taught in a Special Education Classroom. With the help of a Physical Therapist, I helped a student with severe cerebral palsy say his first word! His name was Alan and he said, “Hi!” and he was so happy! Alan smiled from ear to ear and I almost cried. I was hooked on Communication Disorders. I transferred after my sophomore year to UW-Milwaukee, where I obtained my Bachelor’s Degree and my Master’s Degrees of Science in Speech and Language Pathology while working part-time in the Shipping and Receiving Dept. at Sears in Northridge. I also lived at home with my parents to save money for school.
A Message From Ms. Liss
I grew up with a strong work ethic. In high school I started working as soon as I could. My first job was cooking at a nursing home. Then I got a job with Sears in Northridge. I always worked at Sears whenever I could while I went to school. Fortunately, Sears was very flexible about my hours. My boss was very nice. However, my parents always stressed that SCHOOL was my #1 JOB! My message is this: Dream BIG, Work HARD, Do your BEST, and You will SUCCEED!
In my spare time I enjoy playing with my teacup Yorkie, reading, gardening, sailing, and taking care of the wild songbirds in my yard.
