    Welcome to Robinson Elementary School - Home of the Road Runners!!! 

    I am Karen R. Lee, a product of Birmingham City Schools. My educational background includes obtaining a B.S. Degree in Special Education with a Concentration in Mental Retardation from Alabama A&M University, and a Certification in the field of Emotional Conflict, from the University of Alabama at Birmingham.  In 2004, I received a M.A. Degree in Collaborative Special Education, with a Concentration in Autism, from the University of Alabama at Birmingham. I also completed additional post graduate classes in the field of English as a Second Language, at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. 

    I am currently assgned to Robinson Elementary School as a Special Education Teacher with a concentration in Autism.  I am a veteran teacher in the field of Special Education, and I currently serve as Lead Teacher for the Special Education Department at the school. Everyday I REJOICE for the opportunity to fulfill my calling and passion for teaching...for you see, it was at an early age that I accepted the "GIFT" of working with students with special needs.  My childhood neighbor was diagnosed with Mental Retardation, and although I didn't really know what that meant at the time, I took it upon myself to play with this special friend, and to teach her social skills that were needed to make friends with the other children in the neighborhood.  It was then that I knew what I wanted to be when I grew up...A Special Education Teacher, and throughout my educational career, my mind never wavered.  If I had to do it all over again...my journey wouldn't change!

    Parents, I look forward to working with you and your child during the 2019 - 2020 school year! Please feel free to contact me with any concerns that you may have regarding your child's education.
