Elementary Students of the Month
Congratulations to Pablo (grade 5) and Plácido (grade 2) Alemán
Pablo wrote 1711 words towards his novel A Brief History of Theater. Pablo explains how he came up with the idea for his novel: “I find it really easy to come up with stories but I think by far the hardest thing for me is actually getting the stories out onto the computer or piece of paper…a pretty good way to write a story is just to ask yourself, ‘What if ?’, then you can make the outcome as a crazy as you want because, hey, it’s your story!”
Plácido wrote 702 words (surpassing his goal of 500 words) towards his novel The Spy Kids. Plácido loves to draw, the Harry Potter books and world, animals and nature. He is excellent at math. He found it challenging to find a plot for his NaNoWriMo novel. His story is about a boy named John and all of his friends rescuing lots of kids from different creatures and in the end he finds out that his teacher has been dressing up to be the creatures. He was inspired by the Paddington 2 movie in which the villain dresses up as different characters.”
Spotlight on Team Naturally Disastrous
Congratulations to team Naturally Disastrous for winning the Innovative Project award!
"I don't know what to say except thank you for allowing me and other learners to participate in this program. Coming from more traditional school systems, I feel incredibly blessed to be able to attend Village Home and take online classes through TEACH-NW. I felt as though I needed to take the opportunity this year to express how grateful and excited I am to be able to be in this program through my work samples and communications with Anthony. I sincerely hope that if I and other learners show that we can take responsibility for our own learning, this program and others like it can be available to more learners in the future. It's truly a privilege."
Aaron Johnson, Parent
"When my son told me he wanted to design his own education experience, one part of me rejoiced in his desire to follow his curiosity while another cringed at the many unknowns. What other possibilities were there? Who would understand and be able to guide us? Would he still be able to keep all of his options for his future open? When we found TEACH-NW, I immediately knew this was the right path for him. Thanks to this program and the wonderful facilitators, he has stayed in the drivers' seat of his education, demonstrated his passion for learning in ways that leverage and expand his unique talents, kept all of his higher education options open, and become a happy and thriving life-long learner."
Amanda Johnson, Happy Momma
p.s. Maybe I'll see you at Mock Trial! 🙂
Thank you for building a school where all kids feel important and valuable.

I must admit that your prompt and knowledgeable responses changed the way I thought about charter schools. Having left our previous charter, I expected the same type of communication that I had received from them.....very delayed, no information or very little information in response to my questions, and the left hand not knowing what the right hand was doing. You, and the entire TNW staff, have fully renewed my faith. The communications I've been involved with from TNW staff has always been prompt (almost instantaneous) and if an answer wasn’t known, they at least communicated that to me then got back to me when they did have an answer. I truly feel like TNW values the parents and the students and words can't express how much I appreciate that.
Thank you, again, for allowing us to be a part of the TNW. 🙂

“This school year so far has been amazing thanks to TEACH-NW! I wasn’t happy in regular school, mostly because of how little time we could spend learning about things we were passionate about. There were constant disruptions from other students that kept everyone from learning. It was very chaotic. Now when I can set my own educational goals ….. I feel better about learning new things and am much less stressed.
I have also been able to dance a lot more than last year and have accomplished a lot in dance just since fall term started. I am very passionate about dance! I’ve danced since I was 3.5 years old. The most exciting thing about my dance is that I have started doing pointe work in ballet! I’ve been so excited about this for a long time and thanks to TEACH-NW!
Another exciting thing is that in September I auditioned for my studio’s competition team and was accepted! I was chosen by the choreographers to compete in four pieces. We will compete four times this year and I already know I will love the experience. Because of TEACH-NW, I am able to dance every day and have so much more fun learning!”

“Our year is off to a fabulous start thanks to amazing supportive staff and awesome resources!”
Sara Staton, Parent
‘’This is my first year with Teach NW, and now that we have been doing schooling for about a month, I just wanted to take a moment and give thanks to the TEACH-NW staff for the opportunity to be here. First of all, this school has allowed me to provide resources for my children that I wouldn't be able to provide on my own (or if I had stayed with the same charter we were in last year). This year has been amazing - extracurricular activities (karate, swimming, piano lessons), Spanish lessons that my kids actually like (Foreign Language for kids by kids and Spanish Mama - BOTH!), field trips, and the curriculum...and a kiwicrate...and a tinkercrate. People, I am seriously floored with the level of education I am able to provide my children this year. It has been a dream....and I am only a month in .. every single staff member I have come into contact with has been outstanding. They have gone out of their way, most times immediately responsive to my questions and requests for help (not that they can't lag sometimes, but it has just been amazing). So, THANK YOU Teach NW for not just communicating well, but going beyond my expectations.”
Jessica Choy, Parent
"Thank you for all of your help and encouragement. I can see the finish line and I really can't express how much this program has helped me when I was struggling and any time I have fallen along the way. Marcola School District’s WIOA program has always helped me back up and encouraged me to take care of myself. I don't think I would have done it without you guys and without TEACH-NW. I never had to worry about being looked at differently through you guys. Thank you, for everything."
"This is our second year with TNW...we love this program and the staff so much!"
Shawna Blankenship, Parent
