Mrs. Lisa Newbern

Hello! I am Lisa Newbern and I am the Family and Consumer Science teacher at the Florence Freshman Center. I was born in Memphis, TN but raised in Florence, Alabama. I married my high school sweetheart, Josh, in 2005 and we have two beautiful children that keep us very busy!

I graduated from The University of North Alabama in 2006 and began teaching in the Florence City School System that same year, but when my oldest was born I decided to take a few years off to raise my children. I returned to the classroom in 2017 as the Family and Consumer Science teacher and FCCLA Advisor at the FFC.

I am proud to be a Florence Falcon!
