Mrs. Lester began teaching in the Baltimore City Public School system in 2010 as a Kindergarten teacher. She then returned to Washington, D.C., to become a Pre-Kindergarten teacher, where she served students and families in Wards 5 and 8. While in the classroom, Mrs. Lester served as a Mentor Teacher for four years, providing support to new and veteran teachers. She has a Bachelor of Science in Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology from Howard University and a Master of Education with a focus on Educational Leadership from Strayer University.
