     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. 

     
     
     
    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.
