Ancient Global History

    Dear Students and Parents/ Guardians, 

     Welcome to a new school year at East Lee Middle School! I am excited to begin this year and to get to know all of you. This year we will be exploring ancient global history, including the rise and fall of many civilizations. We will have a number of different activities to gather and absorb this information.

     Every student works at their own pace and learns in their own way. The key is to be building students up as they learn. It is important to recognize a students strength as well as areas where they need to grow. I hope that we can all work together to ensure that every student is increasing their strength and growing where they need to.

    This year will be different from any school year we have experianced. We are becoming part of history. I know that we will be able to overcome any challenges that are presented as long as we work together as a community. There are many exciting adventures ahead of us and we ready for them. 

     I look forward to spending the school year with you. If you have any questions or would like to reach out to me for any reason you can reach me at: 919-776-8441 ext. 1308 or by email at

    Thank you,
