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.
This school year I was a LEND (Leadership Education in Neurodevelopmental and related Disabilities) Fellow and just completed this phenomenal program. My research project will be a transition manual focused on transition from high school to post-secondary education settings, to be disseminated across schools in Alaska. I also recently finished the mentor training program within the school district and look forward to becoming a teacher mentor next school year.
This summer, I will be available to teach ASL and provide tutoring classes.
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.
