10-Second Bio: Teri Lee
Name: Teri Lee
Title: Communications Director for Mathematics, Engineering, Science Achievement (MESA)
Department/Unit: Education Partnerships
Location: Kaiser Building
How long I’ve been with UCOP: 1993
What I do for OP in five words or less: Communications/public relations for MESA
The best part about working for OP: The people! I am honored to work with such creative and dedicated individuals who are committed to increasing educational opportunities for students.
Something you don’t know about me: I have two pottery kilns, including one that I built. I lust for a third one, but we have no more room in the backyard. I just bought some Chinese mooncake molds and plan to use the mooncake designs on my pottery.
One weird fact about the town I grew up in: Fullerton is a very conservative town, but it was a center for the hardcore punk rock scene in the late ’70s.
If I could have any job in the world (besides the one I have now): Some days I think I’d be back in Oakland Chinatown working in a community organization. On other days I think I’d like to work as an apprentice to a master potter.
