Epsom Central School Staff and Faculty
Mr. Scott Lee, Social Studies Teacher
Mr. Lee is half of the team that teaches Social Studies to 5th and
8th grade students. He graduated from UNH with a BA in History and
an M.Ed. He taught for four years at the Riverside School in Lowell,
MA and has been at ECS for 11 years. Mr. Lee enjoys working in a
school like ECS, which he calls a small, tightly-knit community,
where one can develop close relationships with students. He believes
that such an environment insures that students almost always get the
help they need to learn and grow.
Mr. Lee appreciates the resources available to the teachers at ECS,
and says that the tech people are “wonderful,” keeping computer
equipment running and safely and efficiently networked. Parents have
access via the internet to ask questions, check their children’s
homework assignment and grades, and find information about school
events. Mr. Lee says that he and other teachers will respond to
email inquiries from parents. He has worked with colleagues to agree
that children should learn where countries are before they learn
what countries are, so Geography is now taught in 5th grade, with US
and world history being taught in higher grades. Mr. Lee makes sure
such subjects as the Civil War have been studied before he
accompanies the 8th grade on their class trip to Washington, DC and
Gettysburg, PA, which he calls “extremely well organized” by Mary
Yeaton and Joan Pozner. Mr. Lee recommends that parents get and stay
involved in their child’s education and to keep track of how well or
how poorly they are doing.
Mr. Lee says that, since he teaches in a middle school, he doesn’t
often see students after they graduate. One exception was a recent
gratifying encounter of a former student at a cash register in a
department store, who told Mr. Lee that she was starting college in
Mr. Lee and his wife, a school administrator, live in Merrimack with
their recently adopted son, Christopher. Mr. Lee enjoys golf,
traveling with his family, and working in the yard.
