Meet Holly Lee, my student teacher

Hi everyone! I am a current graduate student through USC’s online MAT program. I was born and raised in Southern California just a few miles from the beach. I pursued my passion for the ocean at the University of Hawai’i at Mānoa, getting my degree in marine biology. My goal as an educator is to help students make connections between the natural world and their everyday lives. I am so excited for this school year and to learn from you all!
