Shauna Altman has been passionate about learning and technology for as long as she can remember. She started teaching elementary students in Eugene, Oregon after graduating with a bachelor's degree in elementary education Northwest Christian University in 2003. Three years later, she moved to Pendleton, Oregon, where she worked as a literacy coach, a music teacher, and a reading support specialist before finding her way back into the second grade classroom again. At every opportunity, Shauna learned more about personalizing education and about integrating technology into the classroom. Her desire to teach with technology led her to earn her master of education degree from Lesley University in the spring of 2011, while continuing to teach for the Pendleton School District. After taking some time off to stay home with her young children, Shauna finally found her school "home" at Baker Web Academy. She works part time from her home in Pendleton, traveling regularly to the Hermiston area for home visits with her advisory students. She teaches language arts for both elementary and middle school students, and has launched the online spring piano recital, the elementary technology class, and the middle school science fair. Shauna Altman loves being part of a school where she can personalize education, problem solve with families, and use technology enrich the lives of her students. She looks forward to continued learning and growth at Baker Web Academy.
