Melissa Yee » Welcome


Welcome back to a new Semester Fall 2017

Parents, Guardians, and Students
A New Year and a new challenges for all.  I am adding another year , 20+1 years in the SDC mild/ moderate arena of Special Education and back to teaching my passion of Science, Biology.
Now for the Parents of our students, here is a little history ....

Throughout the many years of education I, Melissa Yee have been privileged to touch the lives and assist hundreds of young adults from the Middle School to the High School on their educational journey for the past 21 years in LAUSD. Throughout my tenure in Special Education I have taught all core classes, English, Social Studies, Math, Biology, Science, Health, Swimming, and Computer Technology with in the Mild/ Moderate and ED arena and also Recovery on an online delivery system, APEX.  As I told my colleagues, I have a Bingo!  all spots have been checked off

As a CSUN graduate in Community Health Education/ Biology many years ago, my first love was not education but rather dentistry for 22 years in management and as an assistant. My credentials of teaching Mild/Moderate and Education Technology have allowed me to engage all students to be successful. I also enjoy the arts, outdoors, traveling, assisting youth and living life with my family of Engineers!
