Northern Regional Director

Lita Lee

My decisions and actions are all student focused. I want to ensure that our students are prepared to not only survive but also succeed in today’s challenging world. I chose to work for JMCS because they align with my mission of students first in all that we do, and they allow us to meet and teach each student from where they are in their educational journey. Students can expect that I will be approachable, open, honest, and have high expectations for all.
