Hello! Thank you for coming to check out my website. This page will tell you a little about me and what I do. Feel free to email me at email@leewaters.org if you have any questions! Thanks for being here and hope to hear from you soon. 

Lee Waters, Educator and Artist 

I have been teaching special education since 1991. My background is in Deaf education. I've been a Classroom teacher, University lecturer, School administrator, American Sign Language instructor and an Educational Specialist/consultant. My degrees range from an Associates of Science in Early Childhood Education to a Doctoral degree in Educational Leadership. I am licensed as a K-12 Special Education Teacher of the Deaf/Hard of Hearing, K-12 Director of Special Education, and as a K-12 Principal. When not working or creating in my studio, I spend time with family and friends.

 My most recent professional endeavor was a fellowship with the LEND (Leadership Education in Neuro-developmental and related Disabilities) program at University of Alaska's Center for Human Development. From that experience, I created a transition manual, focused on transitioning from high school to post-secondary education settings, to be disseminated across schools in Alaska and nationwide.  https://www.asdk12.org/PostsecondaryTransitionManual


Please check the Services page on this website to see the scheduled classes. ASL classes will resume in April.


Also, take a look at the "Gallery" section of this site under the Waxed Musings tab. The 'Shop' tab will soon feature my work for sale and include necklaces my husband made.


Let me know if you have any questions!


Stay safe and healthy,

This is my educational consulting business. All children have the potential to learn. I give strategies to support a positive outlook about learning and changing from a fixed to a growth mindset. I offer individual and group tutoring/classes with a focus on written/expressive language and reading (K-12). I also offer consultation (training, workshops, needs assessments) with school districts and agencies geared to servicing students with disabilities.

 Waxed Musings 

This is my art business. I enjoy creating mosaic glass art and painting with oil, acrylic and Encaustic. I offer art classes to children and adults. Check out my gallery page to see some of my work. Recently this past year, I had solo art shows at Snow City Cafe and Middle Way Cafe as well as group shows at Sevigny Art Gallery and the International Gallery of Contemporary Art. 

Stay tuned for summer 2021 art classes!
