Vanessa Lee

I'm starting my 6th year at Back of the Yards College Prep and my 13th year of teaching. I was raised in the suburbs of Chicago before moving to Florida when I was 13. I went to high school and college in Florida before heading back up north for grad school. Before teaching in Chicago Public Schools, I taught in Florida and Kuwait. I began as an English teacher, but now I am the OneGoal teacher and the Post-Secondary Lead. 
 
I live in Chicago with my husband, two kids (4 and 1.5), 2 cats, and 1 dog. We have a busy (and noisy) house! I love to cook and eat, explore the city, and spend time with family.
