New to the Saint Thomas Academy faculty this year, Lisa Deyak teaches 9th and 10th grade English. Originally from Spring Green, WI, Deyak began coaching gymnastics and swimming at the age of 15. While continuing to coach, she began pursuing an architecture degree at the University of Minnesota.

“The parents of the kids I coached always encouraged me to be a teacher, as they said I was a good coach. So, I changed my major to English, and went on to get my master’s degree in education,” Deyak said. “I really enjoy teaching because I like getting to know the kids and working with their energy.”
