Elementary Student of the Month – Evan Staton
We are very proud to announce that fourth grader, Evan Staton, has earned Student of the Month for May! Evan has learned and grown by leaps and bounds this year, dedicated to learning as much as possible with joy and curiosity. He sets goals for himself and then works very hard to accomplish them, amazing us with the products of these efforts. Among his many talents are film-making and cartography. Check out this beautiful map he made of Africa! He also recently completed an extensive research paper on foals, sharing his expertise and knowledge with us in a very well organized report. Most importantly, we recognize Evan as a self-motivated learner with a positive attitude. As Evan states, “I love being a homeschool student at Teach NW because my principal, Phil, is the best principal ever because he’s so nice and generous. My teacher, Erin, is really good because she helps me stay on track. I love riding dirt bikes during recess – that’s the best part of homeschool.”
Secondary Student of the Month – Ella Ashford
We are pleased to announce that Ella Ashford has been chosen as the high school student of the month for April. She has many accomplishments both academically and socially. She is on track to graduate this year with an impressive 4.0. In addition to her academics, Ella has recently attended the First Robotics World Championship where she served as a FIRST student ambassador giving tours to politicians, corporations, and foundations. She is engaged in FIRST Tech Challenge and the FIRST Robotics Competition and has been honored as a 2018 FIRST Dean’s List Finalist where she was afforded the opportunity to represent Washington, Oregon and Alaska at the FIRST World Championships. Ella is also the CEO, pilot, electrical and software engineer on her MATE (Marine, Advanced, Technology, Education) underwater robotics team. They are currently ranked 4th in the world and are preparing for another successful competition season. Ella is an avid hiker, skier, and photographer who enjoys exploring the Pacific Northwest.
Spotlight on Carter and Kailen Wills
Carter and Kailen Wills have been studying Ancient China for the past few weeks and, as part of their arts unit, they learned about shadow puppets. They read some stories about the origin of shadow puppets then watched some amazing examples online. They used paper, card stock, brads, dowels, and an old box to build their own theater and puppets. For their writing exercise that day, they both wrote a simple original story and then worked together to perform them. It was a lot of fun and a great way to end our week.
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.”

"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!"
