Get to Know – Lisa DuChateau, Director of Development
The Christ School is pleased to welcome Lisa DuChateau as our Director of Development. Lisa was born and raised in Orlando and is married to her husband Don. Together they share six children: Jacob 22, Christina 20, Zachary 18, Dylan 18, Elizabeth 15, and Carson 13. Needless to say, life is constantly busy! The family loves to travel and often spend weekends exploring new places. Lisa is an avid walker and has played tennis since childhood.
When asked, “What drew you to the field of education?” Lisa responded, “I knew from a very young age that I wanted to work with children. In college, I found a passion to serve children with special needs and earned my degree in Exceptional Child Education, Specific Learning Disabilities, and went on to receive a masters in Elementary Education. After teaching for 15 years , I was asked to serve as the Development Director for my school and church and there began my journey in development.” Lisa continued, “Being in Development, I have the unique opportunity to share the mission of our school to our community. I love building relationships and interacting with those who want to make a difference. Providing the opportunity for a donor to see the impact their gift makes not only for today, but for generations to come, is an honor.”
What led Lisa to TCS? Faith. Loving God is in everything TCS does. Community. TCS is a place where she can live out her passions…faith, education, helping children and sharing the mission of our school with our families and broader community.
Lisa looks forward to meeting families, interacting with students and being in community with colleagues. She added, “I am so blessed to have been given the opportunity to be a part of TCS. This truly is a beautiful place.” Lisa’s favorite Bible verse is Psalm 119:105 “Thy word is a lamp unto feet and a light unto my path.”
