Sang-Hoon “Shawn” Lee
LEE ENGINEERS EXCELLENCE IN STUDENTS
Since Lee arrived at the University of Houston in 2003, he has engineered his classes to help students sharpen their powers of observation and adjust to new environments. Not only do his students grasp the concepts or theories of his classes, they also learn the skills to continue learning and improving themselves.
One student wrote in a letter of support, “Shawn’s best asset is the way he motivates students. He is extremely positive and challenges us to work ‘outside the box.’ Simply put, Shawn makes learning fun.”
