Fifth Grade Teacher
Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Marcia Lee
I have been teaching since 2005. I have taught sixth, fifth, fourth, and second grade. My goals as a teacher include: supporting students in becoming lifelong learners, creating a student-centered environment and inspiring all children to recognize their own success. In accomplishing these goals as a teacher, the children I teach are successful and engaged learners. I work with my students to identify personal goals and create purposeful lessons to help every individual meet their goals.
