Kellie Lee has taught math at Glasgow High School for the past seven years, and she currently teaches Pre-AP Geometry, Principles of Statistics and AP Statistics, according to a GHS press release.
“Statistics is an important class because it is applicable to several courses of study,” Lee stated in the press release. “Additionally, there is a movement across colleges and universities to teach statistics.
“Teaching statistics at the high school level helps prepare students for collegiate mathematics courses.”
According to the press release, Lee spends part of the school year and summer presenting at various AdvanceKentucky events. She is also a national trainer for Laying the Foundation, a program instituted by the National Math and Science Initiative (NMSI).
“Lee feels that her time spent presenting is valuable because it allows her to learn from her peers just as they learn from her,” the press release states.
The Laying the Foundation program “equips educators with the content knowledge and instructional know-how they need to set high classroom expectations and shift students to advanced levels of thinking and learning as early as grade 3, all the way through high school,” according to the NMSI website.
Lee earned a bachelor's degree in elementary education, secondary mathematics and exceptional education from Western Kentucky University, according to the GHS press release. She also earned a master's degree in exceptional education K-12 from WKU.
