About Lisa Pryor

                    This is a photo of me and my husband, Tad. 

   I was born in Goldsboro, North Carolina and moved to Oklahoma when I was two.  I moved around a lot as a kid because my Dad was a rough neck in the oil field.  I have attended Verden, Am-po, Chickasha, Davis, and Sulphur schools.  I graduated as a Sulphur Bulldog in 1995.  Sulphur is where most of my family currently live.  

   I have lived in Marlow for 20 years and my husband and I have been married for 17 years.  We have one son, Tyler, who attended PreK-12 grades as a Marlow Outlaw and is now an electrician. We have 2 maltese dogs (Tank-10 & Levi-13) and 2 cats (Sass-18 and Liam-2).  

  We love to go to Lake Texoma every chance we get to boat, swim, camp, fish, and be with family and friends.  I have two brothers, one older and one younger;  I was the only grandaughter on my mother’s side, amongst all of my cousins. 

  I grew up wanting to help animals, so I went to college and focused on Veterinary Technology in Tishomingo, OK.  I graduated in 2000, earning an Associate’s Degree in Applied Science. My first veterinary job was in Marlow when I moved here in 2000.  I have been a Registered Veterinary Technician (RVT) for 20 years now. 

  I love being able to help animals, but I needed to focus on a long-term career. I never thought I wanted to be a teacher because of my own negative school experiences; although I did have the ONE awesome fifth grade Social Studies teacher.  Through substituting, I found that it was all up to the teacher to make learning a meaningful experience. 

  I decided to continue my love for animals, but also pursue a career in teaching.  I continued working at Neel Veterinary Hospital while attending USAO in Chickasha, OK and earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Education in 2007.  I fell in love with teaching. This will be my 13th year of teaching science and I am having a blast!  I am still a licensed veterinary technician and will continue helping furry friends during my summer breaks and if we’re lucky, we may have a few surprises throughout the year in our classroom.  My past classes have been part of bottle feeding puppies, kittens, raising baby birds, and other misc. critters.

  My purpose of a teacher is to make the most out of the students sixth grade year.  As a teacher, we wear many hats and I hope to make positive impacts on ALL students whenever possible.  Middle school is the toughest years for the kids in my opinion, so helping raise educated well-rounded characters for our future society is my goal.  Making fun, meaningful memories should be everyone’s number one goal. Welcome to my world, hope it’s a fun ride. :)
