Teachers change lives every day

Thank you, Ms. Lee

Author: Lisa and Leonard Mackey
Teacher's name: Ms. Symone Lee
Teacher's school: St. Matthew's Elementary

Benjamin is 11 years old and in grade 5 at St. Matthew’s School. He has cerebral palsy, is non-verbal, and requires full care. He has had a fabulous Instructional Resource Teacher for the past 2 years.

Ms. Symone Lee ensures he works hard to reach his full potential while, at the same time, making his days fun. She provides him with a wide variety of activities and she knows what works for him. He looks forward to school every day and he has the biggest smile on his face as he goes off on the school bus. It’s not hard to tell he enjoys his days when he comes home so “chatty” with so much to tell us.

We are forever grateful to Ms. Lee for her genuine concern for Benjamin and her drive to make him excel to the best of his ability. She gives her all to her job and we greatly appreciate all that she has accomplished with him.
