Lee Waters, Teacher and Artist
I have been teaching special education since 1991. My background is in Deaf education. I have been a Classroom teacher, University lecturer, School administrator, American Sign Language instructor and an Educational Specialist working as a consultant. My degrees range from an Associates of Science in Early Childhood Education to a Doctoral degree in Educational Leadership. Each year I take workshops with UAA/APU credit for professional development. When not working or creating in my studio, my husband and our two children enjoy doing fun activities together and with friends.
New changes for this school year: I've been accepted as a LEND (Leadership Education in Neurodevelopmental and related Disabilities) Fellow. I am looking forward to learning about systems change, building relationships with families in the community and collaborating with professionals and agencies throughout Alaska.
During the school year of 2019-2020, I will be offering one parent workshop on Growth Mindset in November and one adult ASL sign class session in October-November. I have ASL classes for children scheduled periodically, please contact me for available dates.
Please check the Services page on this website to see the classes scheduled. Let me know if you have any questions!
This is my educational consulting business, something I'm very excited about. I believe all children have the potential to want 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 after school during the school year. I also have a fantastic class for parents to learn about growth mindsets with tools they can use with their children.

This is my art business, something I'm very passionate about. I work with most media but am drawn to mosaic and Encaustic. I offer art classes to children and adults. Soon, I will have an art page for showing images of my art work, some for sale and NFS. This page is currently a work in progress.
