Instructor – Ms. Lisa Pison
I have been teaching web design since 2001. I have a love of teaching that began when I was a corporate trainer in industry and as an adjunct instructor for Harrisburg Area Community College. I then moved to public education, where I found my calling. I enjoy working with high school students and passing on my passion for web design. I stay current by keeping up with industry standards and the latest technology.
