     Hello Shaw Family!!!! I am so excited to be a part of this community of educators who love children and encourage their potential academically and artistically.  Know that if you or your student ever become a part of room 104 that you are valued, appreciated, and loved. Mrs. George and I work diligently to make our students believe in their abilities and challenge them to prove to the world that they are much more than what a piece of paper says they are.  I look forward to collaborating with you on all the ways to make your child Believe it. Achieve it. With all thier HeARTs.... Love Mrs. Tate-Ward
     My name is Barbara Tate-Ward and this is my 4th year teaching at Shaw Elementary School as the Special Education teacher.  I have been in the teaching field for 7 years now, and I love working with students.  I am originally from Mobile, Al., but I love working in the inner city. I attended Vashon High School and obtained my dual degree in Elementary Education and Cross-Categorical Disabilities from Missouri Baptist University in 2014.  I began my career in Special School District, working with students with mild to moderate disabilities ranging anywhere from a Specfic Learning Disability, to students who were wheel-chair dependent or unable to speak, hear, and or see. I learned so much about the will of man and also about myself from those students that now I believe in the ability for anyone to learn when given the right tools.  This is why I push my students so hard, because I know thier potential.  My husband and I have a son who will be three in November 2018, and  neice we love dearly that will be 6 september 2018.  I plan to attend graduate school next fall to obtain a Masters degree in early childhood special education.
