• Lisa Burleson



    My name is Lisa Burleson and it is my greatest joy to say this is my third year serving the Memorial family as one of your assistant principals. As the Assistant Principal, I will work diligently with Ms. Lawson, Ms. Miles, our faculty and staff , and the community to carry out the vision and mission of Memorial Elementary.


    2023-2024 will be my 16th year serving in education, previously serving as a middle school teacher and coach in Garland ISD. Then an elementary teacher, Language Arts learning facilitator/instructional coach and assistant principal in Lewisville ISD. I graduated from University of North Texas with my Bachelors in Interdisciplinary Studies and my Masters in Educational Leadership. Go Eagles!


    I think education is one of the most rewarding careers. I have dedicated my life to helping students fall in love with learning and be able to meet new challenges. I believe all students can be successful with the right encouragement and environment. 


    My family and I live in the Carrollton area and we love calling the DFW area our home. I have three boys  - 6, 4, and a newborn which means I get the opportunity to also be a Memorial parent. 


    I can’t wait to share with you the great things your children do at Memorial!  This role provides me with the chance to work collaboratively with teachers on a daily basis, while also remaining connected to our students' growth and learning that takes place in the classroom. 


    I am excited about the possibilities that this school year will bring and proud to be part of the Mav Family. Let’s have a great 2023- 2024 school year.
