“I enjoy interacting with them, whether it is about the content I am teaching or just with them,” Lee said. “I also love teaching biology and learning from my students.”

“I want my students to know that I care about them and work hard to help each one of them learn, grow and feel successful,” Lee said.

Her students may not know that she was a teacher assistant while earning her education degree. Before seeking her degree, she worked at a pediatrician’s office, so no mater her job in life, she has always worked with the younger generation.
