Jim Lee: Owner, Special Education, Elementary and Middle School Reading/Writing/Math/Study Skills, and ACT/SAT Preparation
Jim graduated from Hastings High School in 1983. Jim earned his Bachelor of Arts Degree and obtained his Teaching Licensure in Social Studies from the College of Saint Thomas in 1990. Jim went on to earn his Master's of Education Degree in Special Education from the University of Minnesota in 1994. Jim taught at Oakland Junior High in the Stillwater School District as a SLD and E/BD teacher from 1993 -1998. It was there that he discovered the difficulties in making significant academic progress with any one student, while working with so many at different levels in different areas. It was at that point he decided much more of a difference could be made by working with students one at a time, at an appropriate level and pace, without the red tape associated with special education. On September 1, 1998 Jim opened the doors of Lee Education Center and has never looked back.
