Ms. Lisa Foust talk with a student in a hallway during school.

Ms. Lisa Foust isn’t new to the classroom. She’s been a substitute at the high school for years. But this year, she plays a new role at Pattonville for its students as an academic monitor for the freshman class.

“I keep them on track and make sure I know where they are academic wise,” Foust said.

She said she also advises students about tutoring options available at the school.

She subbed for Pattonville for 6 years before becoming a permanent teacher. Her third grade teacher, Ms. Cagle, inspired her to become a teacher.

“Every day we had fun in her class, and she was very nice,” she said. “You can tell she loved all of us.”

Now, Foust is really happy to have her own room located in the B-wing.

“I need to decorate,” she said, of the empty B103 classroom that was used by Ms. Casey Christiansen last year. Christiansen moved upstairs to the D-wing to be in the history department.

Foust, a 1998 alumna of Pattonville High School, played basketball and was a forward for the girls’ team.

 

In addition to her role as an academic monitor, she started coaching basketball in 2013 and coaches the girls’ freshman team and also her son’s basketball team.

“It’s my favorite sport,” she said. “I spent my summer planning for this season.”
