What's Happening in Lee County Schools

  • INSPIRED. Food Truck Rodeo: SLHS Style

    If you were in Gwen Williams' food and nutrition class at Southern Lee High School last Friday, you could have been forgiven if you mistook the scene for a cooking show like Master Chef. Culinary offerings from a variety of cuisines? Check. “Celebrity” judges tasting the food and giving out notes to teams of student chefs? Check. It was all there, but it wasn't a cooking show. Instead, it was the culmination of a “food truck” assignment which the 20 10th, 11th and 12th graders in Williams' class had been working on for most of the school year.

  • INSPIRED. Dashawn Gilmore: Finding "Hope"

    Dashawn Gilmore may be a pretty quiet kid, but it's not because he doesn't have much to say. No, it would be a mistake to think that. Because while Gilmore – a sophomore at Southern Lee High School – isn't a real big talker, he expresses himself plenty through a variety of artistic pursuits. He creates pottery in his ceramics class. He's written songs and stories, he draws and he's active with his school's step team. Oh, and by the time this month is over, he'll be a twice-published poet.

  • INSPIRED. Molly Poston, Assistant Principal of the Year

    After putting so much effort into keeping Dr. Chris Dossenbach's Principal of the Year Award a secret, Southern Lee High Assistant Principal Molly Poston got a taste of her own medicine, in the best way possible. She entered the media center thinking that she was going to address students' behavior and walked into receiving Assistant Principal of the Year!

  • INSPIRED. Tramway Elementary Wins Head of Class

    Andrea Sloan was so disappointed in her school's end of year test scores in 2016 that she questioned whether Lee County Schools had made a mistake in hiring her to be the principal at Tramway Elementary. But after restructuring the school to allow for teacher experts to let their leadership show through, and a whole lot of hard work put in by students, teachers and staff, Tramway Elementary, for the first time ever, won the Head of Class award.

  • INSPIRED. LaKeisha Snipes, Lee County's Outstanding Secondary Math Teacher

    LaKeisha Snipes doesn't like using tricks when it comes to teaching math. “'Conceptual' is my whole style of teaching,” explained Snipes, who teaches freshman math at Lee County High School and this year's Outstanding Secondary Math Teacher for Lee County. “Like with your times table, I want them to understand the math behind it, the conceptual aspect of it. I don't teach tricks, I teach the math behind it.”
