Mrs. Yee earned a B.S. in Education from Messiah College in Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania. She holds Florida Teacher Certifications in Social Sciences (Grades 5-9), Elementary Education (Grades 1-6), Exceptional Student Education (K-12), Gifted Endorsement (K-12), Pre-Kindergarten (Age 3-Grade 3). She has twenty-six years of teaching experience in public school, as well as home school settings. This included nine years in Gifted Education. As a St. Johns County instructor, she was awarded “Teacher of the Year” for her school. She has been married for twenty-seven years to Jeff Yee, also a former educator. They have three children Kiara, Nathan and Kianna.

During the last eight years, she has become educated in the Classical Christian model, which she has embraced as a key to enabling students to discover God as they learn. Because of her love of history, she initiated her own business, “Hands on History” teaching history to five Classical Conversation Communities. Her zeal for making history come alive is contagious.

Her life verses are “Be anxious about nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thankfulness make your requests known to God and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your thoughts in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:6-7
