The Administrative team for the Magnet Program at Lee High School is extremely involved with not only the day to day running of the programs but the long range vision of the magnet as a whole. If you can't find them in their office, they are with the teachers and students, observing and helping in the classroom.

As the new T.O.S.A./assistant principal, I want to tell you some things about myself. I graduated from Lee High School in which I participated in several magnet programs. I am elated to return to the FAMILEE. I have been with Huntsville City Schools for 12 years. While working with the Huntsville City Schools System, I had the opportunities to present instructional strategy modules at the Lakewood and Dawson Learning Labs to teachers across the city. Additionally, I have been on numerous instructional and leadership committees for the district.
My favorite past times are reading, professionally and for leisure, singing, and spending time with my husband, Stanley, other family, and friends. I collect music boxes, children’s literature, and Koala Bears. My favorite colors are purple, lime, and turquoise. Currently, I am the children’s church coordinator and assistant to the youth director at my place of worship.
My goals are to assist Mrs. Jobe and the administration team along with the entire LHS faculty and staff in continuing the great things happening in all areas. I will do whatever is necessary to make sure our students are successful and ready for the next level of their educational career. Our students will continue to become 21st century learners that are critical thinkers and problem-solvers. Furthermore, they will continue to be positive digital citizens and meet the College and Career Ready and Arts Standards. I am excited about being able to continue the legacy of academic achievement and exceptional performance at LHS.
My main area will be working with the Magnet Arts Programs, so please let me know if you have any suggestions, concerns, or questions. Email is the best way to reach me because I check it frequently during the day. Please feel free to notify me at email@example.com or call me at 256-428-8150. I will get back in contact with you as soon as possible.

I could have been popular were it not for a poor political decision in fifth grade: I didn't join Safety Patrol.
