About Me

Royan Lee is a teacher leader in the York Region District School Board, Ontario, Canada. Currently an intermediate literacy teacher in Richmond Hill, he has experience teaching all elementary grades. Royan’s current professional preoccupations include contemporary literacy and assessment practice, social media in the classroom, and passion based learning. When he isn’t blogging, reading colleagues’ blogs, or tweeting about learning, you can find Royan doing wonderfully mundane things with his three children and beloved wife Janet. He is overly obsessed with food, and is pleased when his Macbook, iPad, iPhone are in sync.


  1. What a great post. Teachers DO mean everything sometimes. School was an oasis of calm for some of my students. I wanted it to be a place for them to be happy.

    I love Mac synchronicity too. I can’t wait for the iCloud coming in fall, when I can at last sync my mail and calendars too. Bliss!

  2. Hi Royan! We saw your post about Haiku Deck and it made our day! In case you’re interested, either for yourself or the interest of your readers, you can directly embed a playable Haiku Deck into your blog post. We’ve got a blog post on how to do this: http://blog.haikudeck.com/?p=141

    Thanks for the support and let us know if you have any feedback for us. #highfive from #haikudeck

  3. Sorry to hear it. If you’re hosting your own wordpress, then you might have problems, but for the vast majority of WordPress sites, it should work. When you click embed did you see the “wordpress” tab in the pop up with the embed code?

  4. Hi Royan!

    I’m working with an award-winning production company and a top-rated national
    cable network to cast a new docu-series that will explore unique perspectives on
    parenting — styles like attachment parenting, authoritative parenting, green
    parenting… you name it, we’re interested in hearing about it.

    We want to showcase all the cultures that live in the United States but have a
    lack of Asian-American families. I wondered if you yourself or parents you knew
    who might be interested in telling me your/their stories. Over the coming weeks,
    we’ll be conducting interviews with prospective parents and families.These
    interviews will largely take place via webcam, so no travel is required.

    I invite you to read more details at  http://punchedinthehead.com/casting/

    Don’t hesitate to be in touch!

    Take care,
