Teachers of TN: LaGenia Lee

“I come from a long line of educators:  my mother, father, several aunts, and my grandmother were all teachers. While education is in my DNA, I wanted to use my love for learning and teaching to push students to be their best and grow….What I love most about my job is the fact that I learn so much from each and every student daily, which in turn allows me to grow as a professional. I have a growth mindset, and while I enjoy facilitating their learning, I really enjoy taking their ideas and expanding my delivery.”
