CES Teacher of the Year

Congratulations to Marisa Lee who is our Teacher of the Year for 2020-2021! After receiving her degree in Elementary Education from USC, she started her career in District 3 at Cannons Elementary as an assistant.  The following year, Mrs. Lee was hired to teach at CES where she has been for the last 16 years.  We are extremely proud that she is a product of District 3 and has continued to make her home in District 3 with her husband, Mike, and  their three children; Michaela, Christian and Noah. She is currently pursuing her M.ED in Literacy and will graduate in December of 2020.  Mrs. Lee stated, “Reading with my students and working with them in small groups is the highlight of my day.”
