Mrs. Lisa Underwood

Welcome to my MCES website!  My name is Lisa Underwood, and I am a second grade teacher at McGees Crossroads Elementary School.  I have been teaching for 20+ years and began my teaching career in Greenville, North Carolina while attending East Carolina University.  I graduated with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Elementary Education in Dec. 1996.  I worked for two years at South Greenville Elementary teaching second and third grades.  Afterwards, I moved back to Harnett County to plan my wedding.  I was married in July 1999 to my husband, Wayne Underwood, a native of Virginia.  As soon as I returned from my honeymoon, I was hired at McGees Crossroads Elementary to start the 1999-2000 school year.  Wayne and I have two healthy, smart, and beautiful girls. They both attend Johnston County Public Schools and are very successful academically and athletically. 

In my free time, I love going to Lake Gaston, Myrtle Beach, snow skiing, water skiing, boating, playing golf, attending church, watching football and traveling.  Our two girls are very active and both play golf 9 months out of the year.  Our younger daughter plays travel soccer for Liberty Point, and the older daughter swims and is in the band at WJHS.  Family time is extremely important to my husband and I.  I am not one for sitting still and neither are our girls.  As we see it, we get one chance at parenting and raising our children, and we intend to be as involved as we possibly can.  

This is going to be an awesome school year and I look forward to getting to know each of my students.


Kindest regards,

Mrs. Lisa Underwood
