Lisa Foster

High School Dean of Students

After a fantastic welcome last year to the DAA family, Lisa is looking forward to joining the HS Leadership Team.

Originally from Australia, Lisa completed her Bachelor of Education at ACU and has a double degree in English Literature from the University of Queensland. She will be awarded her MA in Educational Leadership this year. An experienced Head of Senior School and Head of Year for 13 years, Lisa also teaches both English and history within the IB, Australian and US curriculums.

Lisa recognises the significance of valuing the intellectual, emotional, personal and social growth of young people in order to see them excel. She also understands that heritage and tradition play an integral role in developing a growth mindset and forming positive and respectful relationships with all members of the community. This is something she hopes to further embrace in her new role.
