Portrait of Lisa West McNeice

Lisa West McNeice

During her twenty or so years as a teacher in secondary classrooms, Lisa West McNeice has taught English, English Language, Literature and Art. At Monash University she worked with beginning teachers, and as a consultant she has worked with teams of teachers across the state to engage students and enrich their experience of English. She is a published poet and songwriter and has had experience in student theatre as a writer, director and set designer. Lisa now teaches privately and pursues as creative a life as possible. In 2018 she completed her first major show, an art exhibition incorporating music and poetry performance.


In her creative work, Lisa’s focus is on the operation of landscape and treasured objects on memory and therefore on the stories we tell ourselves. Lisa also aims to support others as much as possible to give voice to their ideas through words, images and music.
