I. Cinthia Lee, Ph.D.

Assistant Professor

Bio

Dr. Cinthia Lee earned her B.S. and M.A. in Special Education, concentrating in cognitive impairment and learning disabilities (K-12), from Eastern Michigan University in Ypsilanti, Michigan. In 2011, Lee received her Ph.D. degree in Special Education at University of Washington in Seattle, Washington. Her doctoral studies culminated into a final dissertation that integrated speech-recognition technology as an intervention for the writing difficulties of students with learning disabilities.


Currently, Lee is an assistant professor in the School of Education M.Ed. K-12 Special Education and Reading Specialist programs. She has built years of experiences in teaching traditional and online courses in higher education, developing, evaluating, adapting and implementing online course materials, and using technology to support student learning and enhance teaching quality.


In addition to higher education, Lee also has extensive K-12 teaching experiences in both special education and general education classrooms. The locations range from a diverse automobile community in Dearborn, Michigan, through southern Taiwan, to Anchorage, Alaska, and Seattle, Washington. These cross-categorical, interstate and international experiences have been instrumental in shaping her culturally responsive teaching practices.


Lee’s research interests include subjects related to mild/moderate disabilities, literacy learning, language development, responsible inclusion (consultation, collaboration & transition), instructional and assistive technology. She has been involved in multiple publications, presentations and panel discussions in her areas of expertise. Lee’s professional services also extend into other appointments, including the webmaster of the Virginia Federation of Council for Exceptional Children (VA CEC), the editorial peer review board for the VA CEC journal, Research to Practice: K-12 Scholarship Journal, and the Human Subject review board for School of Education at Regent University.
