  • Lisa Morgan - Mighty Munchkins Camp Director

    Lisa Morgan began her journey at Wilmington Friends School in 2005, as a downtown Friends Assistant Teacher/After School Staff.  Throughout the academic year she spends her time with teaching the Kangas in preschool. Lisa is passionate about all that she puts her mind to. She explodes with creativity and dedication as she plans experiences with her students. Lisa believes that every student has much to offer when they walk through her doors. She does her best to make sure each child's voice is heard. While teaching children that "they can do hard things", its also important that I allow them to be themselves as they are learning to respect others.  My journey being a Preschool teacher and a Camp Director has taught me lots of things but the most important one I remember is that while I am teaching children I am also being taught by the children I teach. GO Friends!
