Ms. Shana Lee

Hello students and families!

My name is Shana Lee and this is my 3rd year as part of the fantastic community at Murray Middle School. This year I will be collaborating with the science department across all three grade levels and I'm so excited to be able to focus my energy on making science exciting, intriguing and accessible for all of our scholars through academic or "school" language. 


Period 1: Foundations

Period 2: Language Academy Science, level 2

Period 3: Life Science with Ms. Dooley

Period 5: Physical Science with Ms. Crowley

Period 6: Language Academy Science, level 1

Period 7: Earth Science with Ms. Atkinson

I graduated with a bachelors in cultural anthropology from Smith College in 2008, but pursued my first passion of cooking and pastry immediately after graduation. After working in restaurants around the country and living abroad for a few years in Guatemala, I moved back to Minnesota in 2017 and pursued my ESL teaching license and a masters in TESOL. When I'm not planning or preparing for school, I enjoy cooking and baking, spending time with my daughter Katherine and watching Korean dramas.
