Mr. Zachary Lee

Welcome! My name is Zachary Lee, and I have been teaching at David E. Owens Middle School since 2018. I teach ELA in the 6th, 7th and 8th grade Resource and In-class support settings.  With a background in special education, my main philosophy as an educator is that each student has the right and ability to achieve a great education. I enjoy getting to know the interests of my students and incorporating them into the classroom. I believe this leads to strong, meaningful learning experiences and keeps students motivated to keep achieving. My goal is for each student to become a more proficient reader and writer. Through reading and writing, students will learn to express themselves and build a solid foundation for their schooling beyond my classroom.
