A teacher in Nebraska schools for 36 years, Lisa Fricke has deep roots in Nebraska and the district. Lisa graduated from Bellevue High School, and her father, U.S. Air Force Senior Master Sergeant Frank Allen, was active in the community and with veterans’ organizations. Because of her father’s dedicated service to our country, Fricke is a strong advocate for veterans.
Lisa earned her bachelor’s degree in Communications from Wayne State College and, as her five additional endorsements demonstrate, she is a believer in life-long learning. Lisa taught English, Geography, Speech, Drama, Reading, and Language Arts.
Lisa has served as a master teacher mentor for the Intergenerational Mentoring Program, has helped develop NeSA Assessments for Reading, Writing, and Special Education, and was a gubernatorial appointee to the Special Education Accountability Commission. She has also served on several School Improvement External Visitation Teams.
Fricke attends Beautiful Savior Church in LaVista. She has been a Red Cross volunteer, a Salvation Army bell ringer, a mentor for Coach Tom and Nancy Osborne’s Teammate Program, an active member of the Delta Kappa Gamma Teacher Education Honor Society and the Alpha Delta Kappa Altruistic Society. Lisa recently received the WSC School of Education and Counseling Outstanding Alumnus Award.
Fricke and her husband Dave have three children, Jason, Ryan, and Erica & Cpt. Stephen Velasquez who have blessed Fricke with three precious grandchildren.
Support Lisa in continuing her work as a member of the State Board of Education. The foundation for future success lies in effective public schools. All Nebraska students deserve the same educational opportunities no matter where they live.
