Welcome to Mrs. Phenna's class
About Mrs. Phenna:

My name is Alisa Phenna and I am the 5th grade G.T. teacher at Devinny.  This will be my sixth year at Devinny..  My teaching career began in Sheffield, England where my husband and I lived for 10 years.  My husband is British and two of my three children were born there.   My three beautiful children are Steven (23) Katherine (21) and Esther (19).  

I come from a diverse professional background where teaching wasn’t my first career.  I was a Deputy Juvenile Officer for 5 years before training to be teacher.   I got into this position after receiving my B.S. in Psychology.  My love for teaching began to be fostered as I worked with kids in a “lock down” facility helping them complete school work.  Thus began my training for my teaching degree.  I hold a Masters in Education and an endorsement as a Gifted and Talented Specialist.  Big titles that simply mean…I love kids and learning!

My personal passions are nature and gardening.  I live in the mountains where we will frequently get up to two feet of snow overnight.  It is always fun and fast getting to work coming down the mountain.  I love growing vegetables, all kinds, as it comes natural being originally from Arkansas.  I grew up in the south and yes you will hear it!

I am looking forward to working with your children and seeing them grow in mind, body and spirit.  Devinny is a wonderful school and I am very thankful to be part of such a wonderful team!
