Our Welcome To Sanford Lee County Teacher of the Week is Karen Voelz of East Lee Middle School. Mrs. Voelz has only been at East Lee for two years, but she is a true Lee County Schools veteran. In her 24-year teaching career, Mrs. Voelz has taught at West Lee Middle School for seven years, Lee County High School for fifteen years and is now on her second year at East Lee. A proud member of the Wolfpack, Mrs. Voelz graduated from North Carolina State University with a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics Education.
Mrs. Voelz believes a good relationship between a teacher and their students sets the tone for a classroom community. “It is important to me that I provide a classroom that is welcoming and accessible for all students.”
When she’s not in the classroom, Mrs. Voelz enjoys spending time with her family, relaxing at the beach and going to see the Wolfpack play football, baseball and basketball.
