Professional Development Benefits Students.

"My favorite thing about teaching, Is watching students enjoy learning and then applying it to their lives." 

After 18 years of teaching, middle school teacher Deb Richardson knows what it takes to engage students. In addition to three years of elementary school teaching, Deborah has spent 15 years teaching science and ELA to middle schoolers. Currently, besides three grades of science, she is the ASB Advisor and, the Leadership, Road Trip USA, and 6th grade Enrichment teacher.

In August 2019, Deborah attended PEI's Investigating Invasive Species workshop in Nisqually and the Solutions Oriented Storylines: Forest Ecosystem Benefits – Carbon Sequestration workshop, in Battleground. In December, she attended the Solutions Oriented Storylines: Food Waste workshop in Vancouver. She began introducing her students to concepts from the workshops: Teaching them how to weed out plants that don't belong on campus, and why planting trees is important to the world. 

DRichardson 02Students are working on using less plastic and getting rid of the foam trays in the cafeteria. "There's a lot of freedom offered in the storylines I've used from PEI," she says, "And they all work toward a healthier, more fruitful earth."

Because of her cumulative PEI professional development, she says, "I'm better at enrichment. I use 'claims evidence reasoning' in all of my teaching now." 

Winter Events:
  • MLK Holiday, No School, Jan 20
  • FBLA Spaghetti Feed and Auction, Jan 22
  • Community Dinner, Jan. 28
