Lee's primary teaching responsibilities are in the area of action research with graduate students in the field-based master's program. Courses taught include learning theory and instructional practice; scholarly reading and writing; assessment in the service of teaching and learning; and educational research design and development.
While in the doctoral program at Saint Louis University, Lee's research work included an ethical and value dimension graduate school study for the dean of the graduate school. For her dissertation, "Social Justice: Measuring and Assessing the Psychometric Properties," she developed an instrument to measure social justice in Jesuit higher education. Along with these quantitative pieces, she utilized qualitative methods for an assessment of the status of social justice at Saint Louis University for the office of ministry, evaluated a personal responsibility education program in a St. Louis public elementary school, and conducted a content analysis of an intensity sample from Jesuit documents en route to developing the instrument for her dissertation.
While at Saint Louis University, Lee taught undergraduate and graduate statistics courses and enjoyed teaching a college preparatory course for adults in the School for Professional Studies.
