Director of the Urban Teaching Residency Program

Lee taught in high-needs preschools and middle schools for over 20 years. She is interested in digital literacy and how people connect, explore, and interact with each other through the internet. She studies the internet: how educators use it, how late adopters navigate it, and how race impacts web use, parents and schools, and public memory.
