Why Lisa is a hero to pupils.
Lisa, who is the school's deputy head, said: "I love teaching - it gives me a real buzz when I see children understanding and discovering things about the world around them. I am proud to have made a difference to some young people's lives."
She talks of the "real joy in their faces when they learn something practical like tying their shoe laces".
Although the category Lisa succeeded in is no longer running this year, a raft of new awards have been introduced.
The Caring Hero award, which is being sponsored by Massey Ferguson, will recognise the carers in our society who look after sick or disabled relatives, neighbours or friends.
Jo Lawson, from AXA Insurance, which also sponsors the award, said: "It always brings up people who never really get the recognition they should."
