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.Biography: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.
