This year, she remains in the Jr. High teaching 6th grade Religion and Language Arts.

Mrs. Lee was born and raised in Sunnyvale. She attended De Anza College and later transferred to Santa Clara University, earning her Bachelor’s degree in Liberal Studies, along with a minor in English. She completed the teaching credential program through Santa Clara, and in 2007, also earned her Master’s Degree in Pastoral Ministries with an emphasis in Catechetics and Pastoral Liturgy.

Come into Mrs. Lee’s classroom anytime and you’ll likely hear a Rebecca or Sophia story. Who are Rebecca and Sophia? They are Mrs. Lee’s two little girls. Rebecca is 3½ and Sophia will turn 2 in March. While several stories are meant as breaks to the daily routine, there are quite a few that are used to help the 6th grade see themselves as role models and advocates for their own educational experience. Something that is extremely important to Mrs. Lee is that each student takes charge of his/her own learning both academically and personally. Two things you’ll hear quite often in Mrs. Lee’s classroom are, “Dig deeper!” and “Academics will always come.   What I want is for you to walk out of my classroom as good people.” It is from these that Mrs. Lee strives to foster independence and the intrinsic desire to always do ones best.
