    Hello Mae Jemison Families, 


    My name is Terrence C. Lee, Sr. and it will be my honor and pleasure to serve as your Principal. I am excited about starting the 2023-24 school year as we welcome the return of all Mae Jemison students to in-person instruction. 


    I bring to Mae Jemison over twenty years of educational experience, with the past 16 years in Administration and the past 11 years as a building Principal at the Elementary level. I am committed to serving the community and to providing a safe, secure, and healthy environment in which all of our students are provided rigorous instruction to help them achieve their full academic and social-emotional potential. 


    Similar to my predecessor, I am committed to developing relationships with my students, parents, and guardians. I believe that it is essential for families and school staff to work together and share responsibility for student success. I value family members’ expertise in their children, and I look forward to working with you to ensure that all of our children have a successful academic career at Mae Jemison. Please feel free to contact me via email at  or phone at (708) 225-3636 if you have any comments, questions, or suggestions. You are a critical component to making Mae Jemison a successful school, and I thank you in advance for your continued dedication to our children and to our school. 



    Terrence C. Lee, Sr.
