Pingree Teacher Named Klingenstein Fellow
A history teacher at Pingree School has been chosen from a competitive field of independent school teachers to participate in the Summer Institute for Early Career Teachers as a Klingenstein Fellow in June 2012.
For two weeks, Andrew Lee will attend with 75 other young educators from throughout the United States who are also interested in independent school leadership. The institute is run by Teacher's College of Columbia University and held at Lawrenceville Academy in Lawrenceville, N.J.
"I hope to meet really engaged teachers with a passion for helping students in all walks of private school life," explains Lee. "In addition, I hope to engage with some of the best master teachers in the country around concepts of school leadership and training."
Lee, a graduate of Phillips Andover, earned a Bachelor's degree in International Relations from Brown University and a Master of Arts in Teaching degree from Boston University. Born in Canada, but raised in Hong Kong before coming to the United States for prep school, Lee is in his second year of teaching at Pingree.
