Katie Freese is just one of the new teachers at Lisbon High School willing to share some unforgettable experiences with us.

Katie Freese was born and raised in Maryland, with two brothers. She went to Wicomico High School in Salisbury, Maryland where she was a member of her schools’ band, a drum major and in the marching band. She played volleyball, was a class officer and she was also a NHS officer. The schools in Maryland are bigger than the ones in Lisbon; she liked science and sometimes wonders why she did not go into something in the science field.

Mrs. Freese also taught for four years in Maryland. She taught Algebra 1 and Algebra II. She was also a senior class advisor and enjoyed the experience because her students raised money for 13 seniors and four chaperones to participate in the Katrina Relief efforts.

Teaching was not what Mrs. Freese wanted to do; she really wanted to be a television producer. However, when she attended McDaniel College in Westminster, Maryland, she took a class in broadcasting and decided the first day of class she did not like it. While in a math class, she listened intently to her math professor and realized what she wanted to do was teach math. Math was her secondary major. She liked math a lot because, “Math always had a right or wrong answer.” So she thought, until she started teaching AP Stats here, at Lisbon High School.

Mrs. Freese is embarking on her first year teaching in Lisbon. According to Mrs. Freese, “so far so good; I’m taking it one month at a time.” It’s all new for her, new school and a new facility and staff. She is looking forward to winter because.

Mrs. Freese, moved to Maine because her husband is in the Navy and was transferred to Brunswick Naval Air Station.

We welcome you, Mrs. Freese to Lisbon High School. We hope it will be a great experience for you.
