On behalf of the TCA Board of Directors, the TCA Titan of the Year Committee, and the parents of The Classical Academy, the 2019-2020 Titan of the Year award was presented to Lisa Kuyper at our Teacher In-Service Thursday, August 13, 2020.  Lisa Kuyper has worked at TCA for 13 years as Central Elementary’s PE teacher.   Among staff members she is known as a spirited and active individual who is incredibly thoughtful, adventurous, and a caring member of the Central family. She is always up to try something new and challenges her students to be their best. Lisa and her husband have raised 3 children, all graduates from TCA.  Two of them are now following in her footsteps as TCA fellow teachers.

Creativity is a trait that has allowed Lisa to develop new ideas and games beyond PE for our students which  include annual service runs and the 6th grade EPIC program to name a few.  Lisa does her best to find joy in every moment throughout the day.  Her joy and ownership of her curriculum is contagious. When you think of what it means to be a Titan, Lisa is a perfect example.  She is a constant model of respect, passion, humility, and imagination.

We have posted Lisa Kuyper’s Titan of the Year video on the TCA website or you can click here, so you can learn more about her.  We encourage you to take a few minutes out of your busy day to see what this special award is all about and celebrate all of the amazing TCA staff.  If you see Mrs. Kuyper, please congratulate her on this great honor!
