Christie Lee | Lanier Technical College Going from the professional world to the educational realm was the best move for Christie Lee.The 12-year teaching veteran of Lanier Tech actually was an employee of the college before applying for an open teaching position.“I guess I just always knew I wanted to teach,” she said.Why did you choose teaching?“... I didn’t really know that I wanted to teach at the collegiate level until I was in college. And as nerdy as it probably sounds, I think I could be a lifetime college student because I really enjoyed going to college. ... When I went to college I majored in accounting, knew that I really liked it, really didn’t know how to get into teaching. ... Then I got hired here in the business office as a staff accountant. And it just was crazy how it worked out.
