     Hello Shaw Family!!!!

    Well, we finally made it...Summer is officially here!! Although, we have had some major changes, we finished strong and I am so proud of the work we have done.  I am truly going to miss meeting with you every week, but don't think we have to stop.  I am here and just an email, a phone call, a text, or a zoom meeting away.  Please be sure to continue your learning while on break. We wont see each other for a while, but that doesn't mean that we have to stop learning.  I will share some great learning sites to check out while we are on break.  Have fun, enjoy what you can and keep reading. 


    Love you guys. 

     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.
