Principal, Madrone Elementary School

Lisa Christopherson has worked in the Rincon Valley Union School District since 1998. She earned her Bachelor of Arts degree from Chico State University in 1997 and went on to Chapman University to earn her Multiple Subject Teaching Credential. She taught elementary students for 14 years in RVUSD and went on to serve as the district’s Math Consulting Teacher, supporting all TK-8 teachers throughout the district with improving instruction and academic achievement for all students. In 2018, she earned her Administrative Services Credential. 

The Madrone community is one that Lisa holds very near and dear to her heart. She began her teaching career here and then 19 years later, was thrilled to be able to return as Madrone’s principal, where she now sees some of her past students as parents on campus! She is enjoying leading a wonderful staff, and working with great parents and students.

Lisa lives in the community with her husband and two teen-aged children. When she is not working, she loves spending time with her family and friends, cooking and enjoying the outdoors.
