Sue Lee oversees the Leading Classroom Improvement Solution with Studer Education. Her core mission of building capacity in people is evident in her relentless pursuit to help students become co-owners of their learning, achieve at high levels and get more of what they need more often from school.
Sue’s commitment to people is seen in her passion to help students and staff set goals and action toward meeting those goals. Sue’s work integrating improvement processes into classrooms and schools is where she has made the biggest impact on student learning. Focused on nurturing collective teacher efficacy, the schools Sue supported led the district in employee and parent engagement. Helping teachers and students find their voice has led to district improvements such as quadrupling the number of students taking and achieving in AP classes, opening academic learning opportunities to younger students and piloting new opportunities such as the high school debate team.
