My name is Shiela Lee (李詩媚) and I am a native of Colorado (USA). I received my bachelor's degree from Grinnell College (Grinnell, IA) where I majored in Philosophy. I decided to go into education after I taught English at a public school in Kaohsiung, Taiwan on a Fulbright Fellowship. I have a Master's dual-certification degree in teaching students with disabilities and elementary education from Teachers College, Columbia University. I encourage you to read my On Education Blog.
I am the special education teacher in an Integrated Co-Teaching classroom in New York City. As a special education teacher, I am trained in Orton-Gillingham and Wilson, two different multi-sensory education programs. I use a neurodevelopmental framework and multiple intelligences lens when I teach and assess students. As a general education teacher, I am trained in Metamorphosis, Teachers College Reading and Writing Project, and Responsive Classroom. I draw from multiple sources of curriculum to enrich my teaching and love creating an atmosphere that builds community, respects difference, and challenges students to do their best. I incorporate sign language into my classroom and have done pen pal exchanges with schools in Brooklyn, NY, USA, Kaohsiung, Taiwan and Mtwapa, Kenya. I am a technology enthusiast and also love teaching computer science/coding to my students. If you have more questions, please do not hesitate to contact me below.
