Abbott Elementary's Lisa Ann Walter (Melissa Schemmenti) plays the grade-school teacher most of us wish we had. She makes learning fun, knows how to appeal to children, and has a wise-cracking spirit kids can appreciate.

Lisa Ann Walter is a proud mother of four children.

Folks who don’t keep up with Lisa on social media probably aren't aware that she’s a mother of four children: three sons (Jordan and twins Simon and Spencer) and a daughter (Delia).

Lisa shares her oldest son and daughter, Jordan and Delia, with her ex-husband, actor Sam Baum.

In a September 2020 Instagram post, Lisa shared that Jordan started as a baby model and grew to follow in her footsteps as an actor.

Additionally, Lisa shared that Jordan is an accomplished comic, musician, and producer.

As for Delia, not too many details are known about her professional pursuits. While Delia does have a social media presence, her pages are private.

Lisa’s twins, Simon and Spencer, are the epitome of art imitating life. Many fans remember Lisa from her role as Chessy the housekeeper in the Lindsay Lohan film The Parent Trap.

The movie was released in 1998, and two years later, Lisa went on to welcome her twins on Oct. 11 — which is the same day the twins in the movie (Hallie and Annie) celebrate their birthdays.
