Lizette Pierce serves at Concordia as a Spanish teacher. Prior to Concordia, she taught Spanish at IPFW in Fort Wayne, as well as teaching in Denver, CO, and in Little Rock, AR. Her first two years of teaching were in Arizona, where she taught basic academic skills to freshman that had experienced unfortunate events in their lives with a goal of building their confidence so they could mainstream to a regular class environment. This experience was definitely one of Mrs. Pierce’s most memorable, yet challenging, teaching moments.
She graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Journalism and Mass Communications in 2001 from New Mexico State University where she also played softball. She received her teaching credentials after substitute teaching and coaching in Arizona. It was then that she realized her passion for teaching and helping others. She is passionate about education and seeking ways to improve to better prepare the success of her students.
Lizette is married to Bobby Pierce and has two children, Bobby Jr and Daycee. Originally from Tucson, Arizona, she often travels to visit family in Arizona and in Northern Mexico. Spending time with family and friends is one of her favorite things to do. She also enjoys running and playing a variety of sports.
