Lisa Newberry Rhodes


Hi! My name is Lisa Newberry Rhodes. I grew up in Fenton, Michigan. I attended the local Adventist church school, Adelphian Junior Academy for grades 1-10 and then completed high school at Great Lakes Adventist Academy. I earned my Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education, with emphasis in Language Arts & Social Studies, from Andrews University in 2000. I currently hold a Teaching licence for the state of Michigan and a Professional Teaching Certificate for the North American Division of Seventh-day Adventists. In August 2012, I graduated from Andrews University with a Master's Degree in Curriculum & Instruction.

I taught in the greater Detroit area for 8 years before coming to Cross Street Christian School. The majority of those years teaching grades 1-4.

In my free time, I enjoy reading, art, cooking, music, nature, and spending time with family and friends.
