Lisa Kroes-Gee received her TESOL certificate from UCSB in 1988. She began teaching for SBCC Continuing Education ESL shortly afterwards. Prior to that she worked as an ESL aide with various instructors throughout the community. She herself has taught at many locations, but has been at her current location at Catholic Charities for 18 years.
She has three daughters, one husband, one dog, two cats and a toad. She enjoys traveling with her family and watching her kids play and coach soccer. Although her New Year's Resolution is to run a half-marathon with her family, she would much rather play "Words with Friends," than even think about running.
