Recognizing Cloonan Middle School’s Lisa Colonna-Faye 
Stamford Public Schools is thrilled to shine a spotlight on Cloonan Middle School’s Lisa Colonna-Faye, for inspiring us with her efforts to improve her school community.

Lisa has proven herself to be a valuable asset to the Cloonan Community. Her easy-going nature and adaptability has been appreciated as the Special Education staff continues to navigate CTSEDS. She is currently mentoring two of our new staff members, but has taken many others under her wing. According to Cloonan Middle School Assistant Principal Jillian Churchill, “Lisa has become the "go-to" person in the building for special education needs and advice. Her ability to co-teach is seamless, natural, and a joy to watch”. 

Beyond mentoring fellow staff members, Lisa is an inspirational teacher, life long learner, and a positive influence on her school community. Lisa continuously works to modify her lessons, build rapport and help students love math. SPS celebrates Lisa’s efforts to be consistently prepared and appreciates how she helps her students to navigate the difficulties of 8th grade. 

We are so grateful to have her as part of the SPS team!  If you find yourself at Cloonan Lisa will be there to lend a hand, answer any questions and be a team player.
