Welcome to PLTW Engineering
My name is Lisa Lennon and I am one of the six instructors for the Project Lead the Way Engineering Program at ACTC. I teach Introduction to Engineering Design (IED), Computer Science Essentials (CSE), Computer Science Principles (CSP), and Environmental Sustainability (ES).
My bachelor's degree is in Operations and Systems Management from the Kelley School of Business at Indiana University. After moving to the Upstate, I attended Clemson University to earn my Master of Arts in Teaching. I am also half-way through another masters degree. This time I am working on a degree in Biological Sciences. The 2017-2018 school year is my thirteenth year to teach and my fifth year at the Career and Technology Center. I thrive on new challenges and am very excited to get further involved in the PLTW curriculum.
At home, I stay active with my husband and four children. Our youngest is a junior at Clemson and is on the Clemson Men's Soccer Team. We have a daughter that graduated from Clemson with a degree in Biotech Engineering and works for a cardiac device clinic in the Bon Secours hospital system, a son that is a senior in computer science engineering at Clemson. They both completed four years of PLTW classes at ACTC. We also have a daughter who graduated from Anderson University and teaches art at Boiling Springs Middle School. I have plans for training my Welsh Springer Spaniel, Chester, to be a therapy dog.
