Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Wendy Lizana
Welcome QUEST students and parents! I will be your QUEST LAB teacher for the 2023-2024 school year.
I am a Gulfport native, and I graduated summa cum laude from the University of Southern Mississippi with a Bachelor of Science in elementary education and a Master's of Education in gifted from William Carey University. In addition to my gifted certification, I am a National Board Certified Teacher (NBCT). I finished my student teaching at a National Curriculum school just outside London, England, and I have been fortunate enough to observe International Baccalaureate curriculum instruction at international schools in both Munich, Germany, and Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. Thus, traveling and learning about other cultures is very important to me.
I would love to know your ideas! Families are a vital part of our BVE community, and we consider you our partners concerning your child's gifted education. If you have any questions or suggestions, please do not hesitate to contact me. I look forward to a rewarding year of inspiration, learning, and innovation for your child.
