Lehua Lee named Teacher of the Year
Submitted By Allison Aldinger
Mission Valley Regional Occupational Program (MVROP) Sports Therapy instructor Lehua Lee exercises a simple teaching philosophy in her classrooms daily: be passionate about what you teach, cultivate a relationship with each student, develop high expectations for all students, and most importantly, have fun teaching so students have fun learning. This focused dedication towards student learning is one of the many reasons Lehua Lee has been named the 2013 MVROP Teacher of the Year.
Ms. LeeÕs vast experience and passion for Sports Therapy and Career Technical Education (CTE) adds a unique element to this popular health and science career pathway. Her ability to connect, challenge, and engage each student, through relevant industry specific presentations, videos, and hands-on assessments enables students to confidently perform during internships in local physical therapy clinics and athletic training rooms. Extensive relationships with professionals in the community serve as additional sources of support measuring student internship performance referencing work ethics, initiative, professionalism, communication, basic knowledge and employability-skills that model the purpose of Career Technical Education and echo the MVROP mission statement.
Mission Valley ROP Superintendent Thomas Hanson recognizes Ms. Lee as Òa well-respected veteran MVROP teacher who has worked hard and is deserving of this great honor.Ó
Ms. Lee was honored at the MVROP Governing Council meeting on October 17 at the Mission Valley ROP Center Campus.
