Annalisa grew up in Jamaica where she attended primary and secondary school. She moved to the U.S. for college and graduated with honors from UNC-Charlotte. She then taught for several years in Mecklenburg County Public Schools.
Upon relocating to Delaware, Annalisa earned her Masters Degree in Education from the University of Delaware, where she focused on meeting the diverse needs of students with learning differences (K-12). It was at this time that Annalisa developed a passion for working with students who need academic support. Annalisa served as a Research Assistant for a National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD) study that focused on creating and administering a number sense intervention to strengthen the emergent mathematical skills of low-income kindergarten, first and second grade students. This involved working in several Wilmington, DE area public schools. In 2010, Annalisa began working at St. Andrew’s, initially as an organization coach. In 2014, she became St. Andrew’s first Director of Academic Support.
Annalisa enjoys travelling and being quite the fitness enthusiast, and enjoys hiking and strength training. She lives in the Ford House with her husband and two daughters, Laila-Toren and Tate.
