Mrs. Lisa Whipp » Welcome


Welcome, I am currently teaching Algebra 2 periods 1,2, and 6, as well as Algebra 1A periods 3 and 4. I have a B.A. in Mathematics from SDSU and a M.A. in Educational Technology from APU. I have been teaching for over 20 years of which most of these years have been here at EHS. I am looking forward to another wonderful year. I am so happy to be teaching at EHS because we have a family atmosphere. I will be offering tutoring every morning except Wednesday in my room starting at 7:00am. In addition, I offer after school tutoring Monday thru Thursday from 2:30-3:30 in my room 710.  EHS also has after school tutoring in room 226 for all subjects.  Mon- Fri with college tutors.  However, I would like to see my students for math help.
