Anisa Joi Lucas-Grant is a natural born leader. Growing up in the inner city of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, her parents instilled in her that education was the key to unlock her true potential. It was then that Anisa developed her love for learning. She graduated High School with distinction.  Mrs. Lucas-Grant holds a Bachelor of Science from Indiana University of PA and a Master of Education from California University of Pennsylvania. 


In July 2006, Anisa moved to Smyrna, Georgia to teach Kindergarten. From the moment she stepped into her first classroom, she knew she was fulfilling her destiny. After 9 years of establishing a strong foundation for younger students, Anisa realized that it was time to expand her sphere of influence.  


Mrs. Grant accepted a Language Arts position at Chestnut Log Middle School. In her first year, she was recognized as a teacher leader who had great classroom management, and great relationship building skills. After her first year, she was asked to serve as team leader of 6th grade. She also entered the Gifted Certification Program. Anisa believes that as an educator, she helps her students develop goals, morals and ethics that are followed throughout life. Mrs. Grant helps her students by providing them with the knowledge to make good decisions in life. She considers herself to be a nation builder. Anisa wants her students to know that she learns from them just like they learn from her and that it’s truly an honor to be an educator!
