Mrs. (Kennedy) Lee
Hi! My name is Katie (Kennedy) Lee and I’m very excited to be teaching kindergarten at Patrick Henry again this year! I spent 4 years in Massachusetts teaching 2nd grade and receiving my Masters at Boston University. I attended Catholic University for my undergraduate degree so I love the Washington, D.C area. In my free time I like to read, try out new restaurants, travel and visit my sisters in Pennsylvania. I'm excited for another great year at Patrick Henry!
BS in Elementary Education from Lock Haven University(with concentrations in Reading and Spanish). Virginia Certification in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages.
I grew up in a southeastern PA farming community along with my parents and six siblings.Though I love the beauty of the Lancaster/ Lebanon area, I prefer the diversity and cultural opportunities that Northern VA and DC have to offer. The D.C. area has been home for the past 25 years. My first full time teaching job began in a kindergarten class at Patrick Henry. Since then I have enjoyed teaching second,third and fifth grades, Title I Reading and English Language Learners. This year I chose to return to the kindergarten classroom to once again participate in the incredible academic and emotional developmental milestones of 5 and 6 year olds.
One of the pleasures I’ve most enjoyed is traveling to other countries. Some of my favorite places have been Ecuador(where I did part of my student teaching), Machu Picchu, Iguazu Falls (Brazil and Argentina) Prince Edward Island and most recently Istanbul, Turkey.
I also enjoy spending time with extended family and friends. My husband and I enjoy living on Capitol Hill and being close to so many wonderful museums,restaurants and parks.
Hi, my name is Maedeh Pourrabi and I am very excited for my first year in Kindergarten at Patrick Henry! I was raised in Arlington, VA and attended Randolph Elementary from Kindergarten to 5th grade.
