Welcome, Amber Oerther

Here is a personal note from Amber:
I have spent the past several years teaching English Language Arts at St. Helens high school. I am excited to come to TIS because I became a teacher to teach elementary school until my career took me in a different direction. My favorite part about teaching is making connections with students in order to help them reach their goals. I believe in challenging all students to achieve more than they ever thought possible.  I am thrilled to be working with a new group of students so that we can all learn together in an environment based on culture and friendship. 
Outside of school, I am a Zumba instructor. I love dancing and making people smile through song and dance. I also enjoy cooking, reading, knitting and going on adventures of any kind.
Welcome, Amber!
