A word from Robert E. Lee High School Principal, Mr. Farnsworth
February 16, 2016
Dear REL Parents,
My name is Joe Farnsworth. I was recently hired as the principal of Lee High School. I wanted to take a few moments to introduce myself to all of you. I first met my wife in 3rd grade. We have been together now for 19 years and counting. We have five wonderful children of all ages. I was raised an “Army Brat”. My father served in the United States Army for over 20 years. While I was growing up I lived in a variety of places; Germany, Colorado, Maryland, and Arizona. I learned that each community although different has their own points of pride. I know that Baytown holds the same excitement for me and my family. We are thrilled with the opportunity to learn about the wonderful history of this community and Lee High School. I first started out as high school Biology teacher in the Fort Worth Independent School District. I coached girls soccer and volleyball at that time. I enjoyed my time immensely as a teacher and administrator within the Fort Worth School System. We moved to Arizona so that I could be a principal. I have spent the last 10 years in Arizona serving in a variety of administrative positions. I am once again excited about the opportunity to return to the great state of TEXAS! Although I have only been on campus for one week I can say that the students at Lee High School have been very respectful and welcoming. I am excited about all the different programs that Lee High School offers. I am impressed with all of the different initiatives on this campus designed to help your child succeed in school and in life. It is an honor to have been selected as the “Gander Commander”! I look forward to working with you as we embark on this wonderfully important journey of educating our young adults.
Joseph C. Farnsworth, Ed.D.
