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 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.

 One of my recent professional endeavors 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, disseminated across schools in Alaska and nationwide.


Currently, I am training to become a certified K-2 Literacy Expert and am very excited to share my knowledge with others in various capacities. 

Please check the SERVICES page on the main page of this website to see the offering of educational tutoring, consulting and art services. I am excited to offer ASL in April of 2024. All classes are online using Zoom. A link is provided upon receipt of payment. 



Let me know if you have any questions!


Stay safe and healthy.  



Learnability Alaska

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 focusing 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. 

Please send me a message or email to check availability for tutoring services.

This is my art business that I share with my husband. 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. I have 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. Currently I am in a group show at Middle Way Cafe, through April 2024. 

Check out future art classes! This can be found in the SERVICES tab at the top of the home page. If you see a class that interests you, let me know! All art classes will resume in September 2024 beginning with "Introduction to Encaustic Painting".
