Welcome

    Hello!  My name is Lisa Fehling. I have the pleasure, this September, of beginning my 30th year of teaching 2nd grade here at Dalton Elementary School. I absolutley love my job and the families that I serve.  I was born here in Coeur d'Alene and have lived in either Post Falls or Coeur d' Alene my entire life.  My high school sweetheart and I will celebrate our 42nd wedding anniversary in October.  We have 2 adult children who are also both teachers.  We have 5 fun and wonderful grandchildren who are ages 7 to 12.  We are blessed to have the entire family all living on the same beautiful Coeur d'Alene street all within just doors of one another. 
     
    I earned my associate's degree from North Idaho College and my B.A. in Education for Eastern Washington University.  I have an English major and a minor in math.  I keep a very structured and routine oriented classroom as I believe that kids function and learn best when they know what to expect and what is expected of them.  However...I also love to have fun! I have discovered that teaching with humor, polite teasing, and a smile can bring out the best in my kiddos.  
     
    So, welcome to Dalton Gardens Neighborhood Elementary School; truly the best school around!
