The name’s Lee, or Mr. Underwood if you are one of my charges. I teach Philosophy and Rhetoric and Composition, with a ninth grade AVID class thrown in for good measure, at Millikan High School in Long Beach, Cali. I was born and raised in the city, and am glad to be teaching in the Broad Prize Award winning district.
