Equity Graphic for story feature

Help us ELEVATE at our 2022 Equity Symposium on August 23. Share your Highline story or equity work by speaking in our opening session or presenting at a breakout session. Students, families, and community presenters will receive a $100 honorarium. Sessions will be held virtually.

For many of our educators in Highline, teaching is a calling. Some were always drawn to the profession. Others found it later in life.

In recognition of Teacher Appreciation Week, we are sharing the stories of three Highline teachers. We asked what inspired them to become educators and what keeps them motivated. While each story is unique, they all share a deep commitment to student success.
