Mrs. Tolnay

1st Grade Teacher

Hi, my name is Mrs. Lisa Tolnay. I have been teaching for over 30 years. I have taught 5th, 2nd, 3rd,  Kindergarten, 1st in my second school, Infant of Prague and now again beginning 2017-2018 school year here. I don’t have a favorite. I loved something about each and every grade. Teaching is such a rewarding occupation. The kids are always making me feel so blessed to be part of their lives. In addition to teaching I am a mother of two daughters who have made me so proud as well. My daughter Emily is a fashion designer in NYC and my daughter Rachel works in health care. I love spending time with my family whenever we get the chance. Much laughter and love is always part of my time with my family and students! I am in charge of running the Summer Sparklers program each summer. Each year it is a fun filled program and I look forward to it . The teachers and I work hard to make the program the success that it is every year. My free time is spent with my husband and friends, traveling and finding great deals is what I enjoy when I get the chance!
