Hello and welcome to my life. I’m Lisa Anderson (the LA in LA Coach) and a life long learner. Never in my life did I think I would aspire to having anything to do with education but life has a way of turning things around. Twenty-five years ago I was a medical transcriptionist. I love language and trying figure out those big words used by doctors made me feel great! Typing up ER SOAP (Subjective, Objective, Assessment, and Plan) notes and diagnosing patients before I got through the Objective was a competition for me. I was good at it, too. So good, I decided I could do it on my own at home. All Words Matter, LLC was born and the feast/famine era began. At that time my mother encouraged me to substitute teach. The very first day I was so excited when I got home and I was smitten…smitten with teaching!
I'm a 20+ year veteran of teaching! My experience has led me to teach students in rural to urban schools and loved every minute! From teaching kids to teaching adults to mentoring teachers (and some administrators), it is a blessing to help move learning forward! I love my career! Read More
