Lee Ann Raikes
I have been involved in education for 16 years. For the past 12 years, I have been teaching 7th grade ELA. My philosophies in the classroom are to teach to the whole child, help the students find their voices, and grow together as human beings. I believe in the power of authentic learning experiences to inspire and engage the students. Real-life learning opportunities are more meaningful and will motivate the kids to continue making a difference in the world.
