Meet Heather Lisk from Hightstown High School, East Windsor Regional School District! Heather was nominated for the AENJ Member Spotlight by her colleague, Tamika Diaz who works at Kreps Middle School in the same district.

Heather Lisk attended Moore College of Art and Design and graduated with a BFA in 3D fine arts in 2001. She has been working at Hightstown High School for 13 years, and worked at several private schools for students with special needs prior to working in East Windsor.  Currently, Heather teaches Sculpture and Ceramics I & II. Heather says she loves sharing her knowledge and love for clay with the students. For so many of them, it is their first real exposure to various sculptural materials and she loves helping them find a different way to express themselves.

Beyond the classroom, Heather is a member of the Hightstown Cultural Arts Commission. Working with the commission, she has had students participate in the past two Hightstown Empty Bowls Event by creating bowls in class that they donate to help raise $ for RISE, a local food bank. Over 150 students from Heather’s classes have donated bowls for this event.
Heather has participated in a few AENJ member Art shows in previous years, as well as other local exhibits, showing her own ceramic & sculptural work. Her students’ work has been included in the Mercer County Youth Art Month Exhibition and other local shows for students.
