Welcome to Mrs. Lisa Besso's webpage. I teach mostly junior and seniors at the high school. In the 2017-18 school year I am teaching the following dual enrollment classes: VTC Pre-Calculus I, VTC Pre-Calculus II, VTC Calculus for Engineering, and CCV Applied Math Concepts. I am also teaching Introduction to Computer Science.
I have been teaching at EFHS since 2003. I graduated from University of New Haven (in CT) with a BS in Electrical Engineering and Lehigh University with an MS in mathematics. When not working I enjoy hiking, biking, hanging out with my family and reading a good book.
I am one of the in-school coordinators of the Upward Bound program at our school. Upward Bound is a federally funded program that helps provide certain categories of high school students better opportunities for attending college. The categories of greatest concern are those with low income, those with parents who did not attend college, and those living in rural areas. If you are a student or a parent of a student that could use this assistance, please contact me or Ms. Ullrich.
