Hello! My name is Ty Washington. I am a Special Education teacher, writer, and basketball coach. I have worked with students with severe emotional disabilities, A.D.H.D., and other health impairments. My top qualities as a teacher are patience, planning, and fun. I design lessons that are engaging for students and tailored to meet their specific needs.
More about me: I live in Mesa, Arizona. I earned my Bachelor's degree in English and Spanish from the University of Michigan. Currently, I am enrolled in the Writing, Rhetoric, and Digital Media Studies graduate program at Northern Arizona University. Over the past 8 years, I have worked with students of all ages, from toddlers to high schoolers. I love to help people learn. I believe in the power of a growth mindset and that all students can learn. I look forward to meeting you!
