Lisa Schneier was a high school teacher in the Boston Public Schools for 12 years. Her subject matter focus was English and writing, but she also taught basic literacy and math skills. She earned her Doctorate in Education under the supervision of Eleanor Duckworth at the Harvard Graduate School of Education. She studied Duckworth's methodology of “Critical Exploration,” which was developed from the work of Jean Piaget. After exploring how people learn over a range of ages and subject areas, she focused her own research on ninth graders learning poetry. She has since taught in teacher education programs at the Harvard Graduate School of Education and the University of Massachusetts, Boston Campus. Schneier serves as a lecturer on education in the Education Program of Brandeis University.
