Welcome to Mrs. Kent's Page

Hello. My name is Mrs. Lisa Kent. I am one of four Special Education Learning Support Teachers here at Juniata Gap Elementary School. I mainly work with students in Kindergarten through Second Grade in the areas of math, reading, and writing. I have been a member of the Altoona Area School District teaching staff for 16 years, 15 of which have been right here at Juniata Gap. To prepare for my teaching career, I attended the Pennsylvania State University (Penn State) to receive a Minor in Psychology, a Bachelor of Science Degree in Rehabilitation Education, and a Master of Education Degree in Special Education. I am blessed to have the opportunity to work in the field of education which is not only my chosen career path but also my passion. I look forward to working with both you and your child to ensure that he/she has every opportunity to become the best student he/she can be.
