8 Questions for Ms. Lee


What do you think of GHS so far?

I really enjoy it here so far. Everyone has been welcoming and super positive even with all that is going on. It really shows a lot about the students and staff for remaining positive in challenging times.

How has teaching through a pandemic been different?

It is a little more challenging for me because I usually have tons of hands-on activities in my classes. I learn best through doing and I like to teach that way too. So, I have had to incorporate more virtual activities and assignments, which isn’t quite the same, but learning is still happening.

What do you like to do outside of school?

I enjoy traveling and going on adventures – Mostly outside, so I’m still able to do some. I also got a Cricut a couple years ago and like playing around with that. Oh, I also bake. I have done cupcakes for a couple weddings, graduations, and confirmations.

What is an interesting fact about you? (I included 2, so you can pick)

I used to speak French proficiently, but I’m a bit rusty now.

I have traveled to France (3 times), Panama (2 times), Costa Rica, and South Africa. 

Where is your favorite place to travel? 

I would go to the south of France any day. The North Shore of Lake Superior is also pretty great. Traveling to National Convention with FFA members as they experience new things is a blast. But I think anywhere can be an awesome place to travel with a great crew.

What’s your favorite food?

I like trying new foods, but I will always ask for more Texas Roadhouse Rolls

What made you decide to become a teacher and why did you pick the subject you teach?

I always knew I wanted to teach. (Except for a small stint in 5th grade when I wanted to be a meteorologist) I decided on Agriculture when I was a Sophomore in high school. I grew up on a small farm raising beef cattle and crops. I enjoyed my Ag classes and I understood how important all of the opportunities in Ag & FFA are. I know being in class is important, but it is really neat when you miss a day of school and can apply the skills you learn in English class to compete in a speaking contest, or Math to calculate the erosion factors or fertilizer requirements of a field. Agriculture is needed everyday, or we would all be naked and hungry.

Do you have any secret talents? 

I am pretty good at catching sheep.
