Meet Mr. Alton.
I have been working as a special education teacher for the last 4 years. I was born in Portland, Oregon in the US. My passion for teaching has been passed down in my family; my biggest inspiration is my great grandmother Teddy. She was a teacher who both loved, and was loved by her students. She showed me how is was possible to make a difference in people’s lives, and gave me the inspiration to travel and experience the world. As an international teacher I have combined my love for teaching and travel.
After high school, I graduated from Oregon State University with a BA in Human Development where I focused on Early Childhood Education. From there I went onto Portland State University where I earned my Masters in Special Education and Elementary Education with a focus on Inclusive Education.
Outside of teaching, you will usually find me enjoying the sunshine in an active way. I find that the more extreme sports hold my enthusiasm such as snowboarding, surfing, and skateboarding, but if there is a football (soccer ball) around I am always good for a pickup game. The other best part of my life is the ability to travel. If you want to see more on this, you can check out my travel blog.
So that is me. If you want to know more you just have to ask.
