Lisa Mckenzie, Lead Guide - Farm School, Middle School

Lisa McKenzie is the lead guide for the Farm School Middle School program, which serves adolescents, ages 12–15. Lisa’s background in Cultural Anthropology and passion for drumming are fully appreciated by students, who crave creative expression and are thrilled with human psychology. Lisa holds her North American Montessori Teachers Association/Association Montessori International diploma in Orientation to Adolescent Studies, qualifying her to work with students 12–18 years old.

Clay-Platte first welcomed Lisa as our Orff (music) instructor in 2015, then as the adolescent guide in August 2016.
