about the teacher
Lee Stephenson is an Administrator and a Logic and Rhetoric School recitation, humanities and logic instructor at Sequitur Classical Academy. She is from Atlanta, Georgia, and attended the University of Virginia where she received a B.A. in History and Leadership, and an M.S. of Commerce in Marketing and Management -- degree choices which can only be explained with many years of retrospect. She is currently a teaching apprentice with the Circe Institute and spends most of her time after school re-reading classical texts she teaches because they will always be orders of magnitude greater than her tiny mind can comprehend. She attends and sings at Grace Mid City Church (Baptist) in eponymous Mid City Baton Rouge.
