About Me

Lisa Busby served PBS as Associate Head of School from 2014–2017. In this role, she built upon PBS’s strong school culture through curriculum development, strategic initiative implementation, support of the middle school application process, and supporting preschool through 5th-grade faculty and families. Lisa's current role is focused on strategic planning and guiding 5th-grade families through the application process. She serves on the Board of Directors of Challenge Success, a Stanford-based organization. Lisa lives in San Francisco with her husband and two children.   

My favorite thing about PBS is... our students’ excitement to engage in learning and creative problem-solving every single day.

I chose to work at PBS because... of our teachers’ creativity, empathy, and commitment to making each learning experience engaging and student-centered.

One or two things you might not know about me are... that I have directed professional and youth theater in San Francisco. In my free time, I like to spend time with my family, hike, paint, read, and play ukulele. I grew up in a small beach town in Connecticut, where I return every summer.
