Teacher Spotlight – Mr. Olason, Mt. Solo Middle School

Spotlight – Q & A

Where did you grow up? I was born in New York City and moved to Salt Lake City, UT as a baby. We lived in Salt Lake City until sixth grade then moved to Burien, WA, which is south of Seattle. I graduated from Glacier High School, which no longer exists.

The high school was located at the north end of the runways at SeaTac Airport, during class the jets would zoom right over the school and everyone had to stop what they were doing, wait for the jets to pass then resume school. The noise was just part of the school culture and life.

My wife graduated from R.A. Long.

Where did you go to college? I went to Western Washington University and earned a technology degree. I worked in private business for a while, then went back to Western and got my teaching degree. My first job was as a substitute teacher in Federal Way in 1987.

My wife and I moved to a very small village just north of the Arctic Circle in Alaska. The village had about 260 to 300 people in it. The job market back then was poor, so you had to move where the jobs were.

What was an Alaskan winter like? The winter of 1989 was one of the coldest on record in Alaska and the thermometer pegged at minus 50 degrees below zero.

Why did you leave Alaska?  My wife was pregnant with our first child in 1989 and being 60 miles from the nearest road was not a great idea, so we moved back to Washington.

We moved to the Willapa Valley, I got a job in a small town called Menlo. Both of our kids were born while we lived there.

When did your family move to Longview? In the early 90’s we moved to Longview when I got a job at Natural High School. Natural High School started in the late 1970’s as an alternative high school. I worked at Natural High School for about 2 years.

I moved from Natural High School to Monticello Middle School, where I taught science and math. I worked at Monticello for 11 years. My last 16 years have been at Mt. Solo.

What is the best thing about being a teacher? One of the best parts is that middle school kids are a lot of fun. I really enjoy teaching kids this age they have a lot of energy and are typically very positive.

What are some of the keys to being a good teacher? One of the things is to have a set of procedures kids know that are very clear. The kids will respond to it. Also, there has to be flexibility, I have been teaching middle school almost my whole career, middle school kids make tons of mistake. For the most part, they want to correct the mistakes – so you cannot get too rigid. Allow the kids room to make some errors.

What advice would you have for new teachers? My advice to a new teacher would be, find out what good teachers do – and do that. The teachers I have seen fail have a very fixed mindset, the teachers who flourish have a growth mindset. Great teachers look at other points of view and the big picture. You cannot put a round peg in a square hole – steal every great idea you can.

Do you have any hobbies? I love to snow ski, ride my Surly or Trek bicycle, my wife and I also kayak together. My wife and I just bought an RV trailer, so we will see if we can be RV’ers.

What would you tell the community about what life is like in school? I would tell them that teachers are working hard, and I think the community knows this. I would also tell them kids are improving. If you look at the progression of kids who go through Mt. Solo, they have much better skills after three years of middle school.

How are students different from perceptions created by the media? The kids of today are much the same as in the past – kids are essentially kids. The thing that has changed is the influences on kids, the Internet, technology, structure of the household.  We deal with kids coming in from a different point of view now than we did twenty years ago.

What is your outlook on the future? It’s positive. Whenever you have a bad day, you realize it’s not a lot of kids who are pushing your buttons. You look at your roster and know that most of the kids are great.

What else? I had a child very early in life, so now I have seven grandkids; the oldest grandchild is 21 years old.

What is it like to be a grandfather? I have older grand kids and younger ones, so the dynamic is different based on their age. My relationships with my older grandchildren is more fatherly due to their age. It is great to go over to my daughter’s house and have fun with the kids then go home.

Any final thoughts? We have a great staff at Mt. Solo and feel supported.

“Education has set me free.”

At the age of 25 Natasha Cauley hit rock bottom. She sat in the Emergency Support Shelter with her two boys and no money. She said to herself, “I won’t accept this, it’s not good enough.”

After struggling through life for many years Natasha is using education to improve the lives of her two boys and herself. She made up her mind she won’t stop going to school until her standard of life is “good enough” to break the cycle of family uncertainty and poverty.

Natasha’s story highlights how important it is to graduate from high school.

Natasha’s troubles started with an uncertain home life. After attending multiple middle and high schools in Longview and outside the area Natasha was having trouble fitting into yet another new school.

Natasha earned good grades throughout school, but problems at home made life unbearable. “I’ll just drop out of high school, get my GED, and everything will be fine,” she thought.

With her mother’s written permission (she was told her father had passed away) Natasha dropped out of high school. Over the course of 12 months Natasha went from living with her mother and being a high school student to being a dropout pregnant with her first child.

Living with her boyfriend’s parents, and with no plans to go back to school, trouble arrived quickly. Complications with her pregnancy caused the baby to be born about 6 weeks prematurely. Her new baby boy Tristan weighed a little over 3 pounds at birth. The medical complications caused problems for Natasha too, she spent several weeks recovering while Tristan fought for life in the neonatal unit.

For two years after Tristan was born Natasha worked low level, low paying jobs. She didn’t qualify for better jobs without a high school diploma. She and her boyfriend broke up around Tristan’s third birthday.

Natasha started living with friends in Longview, and at about the same time noticed something wasn’t quite right with Tristan. Doctors said Tristan was fine. Being born prematurely had set Tristan back, but he would catch up over time the doctor said.

It wasn’t until after enrolling Tristan at Kessler Elementary that she received confirmation something else might be wrong. School personnel asked Natasha to take Tristan to a specialist – where she found out Tristan has autism.

Life was tough. Natasha, now 22 years old with an autistic son, was working at the Kelso Red Lion making coffee and waiting tables in the restaurant. Then she became pregnant with her second child. Nine months later William was born.

With a second child Natasha’s life became miserable. She stayed in the house for days at a time taking care of William, while Tristan was often agitated or crying. She suffered from post-partum depression, and felt cut off from the community.

And just when Natasha felt at her wits end, she and her boyfriend split up after a domestic dispute. Natasha took her two boys and a duffle bag of clothes to the Emergency Support Shelter (ESS) in Longview.

“Friends will only help for so long, then you need to help yourself,” Natasha recounted.

A counselor at the ESS gave Natasha a piece of paper and asked her to write some basic, achievable goals. Imagine trying to write goals when you don’t know where your next meal will come from.

With no driver’s license, no car, no job, no high school diploma and two boys to raise Natasha hit rock bottom. She thought something had to drastically change or she’d be forced to accept a life of hardship.

“I needed to fix things,” she said – it was her defining moment. 

The counselor started Natasha working on short-term goals with a promise that once the goals were achieved a new list of goals would be written down.

She wrote down basic needs – get a driver’s license, find a job and get an apartment. At the bottom of the list was education, she wanted to get her high school diploma.

Natasha completed almost all the goals in 90 days.

With her initial goals mostly done Natasha’s focus came back to education. She went to Lower Columbia College and earned her high school diploma in three months – but that wasn’t enough.

She signed up for more classes at LCC with a goal of getting her associate of arts (AA) degree. With one quarter remaining she needed to pass a math class to get her AA degree – and flunked the course.

Instead of quitting she re-took the class and received an “A”, and earned her AA degree. But she wanted a better life for her family, so she enrolled at WSU – Vancouver.

Natasha Cauley will graduate from WSU – Vancouver with a bachelor’s degree in English in the spring of 2019. She reunited with her past boyfriend, William’s father, and life is good. She will be pursuing her master’s degree come next fall.

About her education Natasha said, “Before going back to school I was sleep walking through life. Education has set me free.”

Rising Star: Drake Dalgleish

Longview Public Schools help students launch successfully into college and career. We’d like to introduce a number of our (fairly recent) graduates and highlight their accomplishments and career trajectories. Here is a notable Rising Star:

  • St. Rose School
  • R.A. Long, class of 2017
  • New York Film Academy in Los Angeles, expected graduation 2020

Drake Dalgleish

Born and raised in Longview, film student and award-winning filmmaker Drake Dalgleish describes his hometown as the ideal location to grow up.

“It’s an amazing place to form lasting connections,” Dalgleish nostalgically recalled.

Today, the 2017 grad of R.A. Long High School is focused on making connections with other filmmakers at the New York Film Academy he attends in Los Angeles.

Dalgleish, now 19, is an up-and-coming film writer, director and actor, set to graduate from film school in 2020.  He’s already achieving accolades in the film industry, winning Best Horror film at the L.A. Shorts Film Festival in July for writing and directing “The Presence Behind the Door,” a story of a man trapped in his apartment and struggling to determine what is real and what is merely a figment of his imagination.

It was in Longview, at R.A. Long, that Dalgleish caught the creative bug and was inspired to use his own imagination in theater class.

“I did every production that they offered through all four years,” Dalgleish said. “Theater started me on the path I’m on now. I loved my teacher and she inspired me at a formative time in my life.”

That teacher is Susan Donahue. In 2017, Dalgleish nominated her as an LPS Star Polisher. “She helped me figure out my life,” he wrote.

Fresh off his film festival win and deep in classroom study, Dalgleish is also in the midst of writing his first feature film – a story about clinical depression taught through the eyes of people who have lost a loved one.

“This is an important story to tell and a topic I’m passionate about demystifying,” he said. “And again, it was in Longview, in theatre class, that I learned how passionate I was about this issue when we performed the play ‘The Mental State.’”

He plans to return to Longview to shoot the film once he is finished writing and eventually, he plans to reside in his hometown, in the house he grew up in, but not before he leaves his mark on the film industry.

“Right now I feel like the sky is the limit for my career,” he said.  “In the future I want to be able shoot films and continue to act in them, too.”

Remember the name Drake Dalgleish and remember it all started in Longview.

Longview teachers have class

We’re proud of our educators and are taking this opportunity to introduce you to two of them, in their own words. They have different interests but share a passion for preparing Longview students for successful futures!

This is a supplement to the Longview Public Schools annual report. Both Gail Wells and Sam Kell are featured in the printed version of the annual report.  

Gail Wells, math teacher, Monticello Middle School.

Gail Wells believes everyone can do math. She works the room and uses technology to gauge how much each student understands, even those who never raise their hands.

Where did you grow up and go to school? I was born in North Dakota and grew up in Federal Way, Washington. I was in the first graduating class at Thomas Jefferson High School in Auburn and went to Western Washington University for a degree in home economics.

How did you get from home economics to math? My passion was food and nutrition, but math is completely entrenched in home economics—measuring food, finance, sewing …

Why do people think math is so hard? Society doesn’t allow people not to be “readers,” but for some reason it’s OK to not be good at math. The mindset should be that “I can do it,” because everyone can.

How long have you been teaching? Twenty-six or 27 years—10 years at St. Helens and 10 years at Robert Gray, with four years as a math coach at Kessler and Robert Gray. Now I’m finishing at Monticello Middle School.

How has teaching math changed? When I was in school, it was, “Here is how you do it. Now copy what I do.” We don’t do that anymore. Instead of just handing students an algorithm or a way to do something, we do a lot of concrete building of understanding before moving to the abstract.

What is the best thing about being a teacher? That look on a student’s face when they “get it”—it’s priceless.

What are some of the keys to being a good teacher? Number one is understanding what the goal is. For me it’s the state standards—I have to know what the students need to know. Also …

  • Making sure the students get the needed feedback so they can self-evaluate.
  • Being ready when they walk through the door—knowing where you’re going and how to get there, not just turning the page on the book and teaching them what’s on the next page.
  • Adjusting if the students are not getting it.

The big thing here at Monticello is I have an amazing teaching partner, Phil Hartley. We collaborate, do assessments, reflect on student work, talk about the goals and are transparent about our work. Today we are going to share kids and do some interventions, so we can get them where they need to be right now.

To be a good teacher, it’s everything, including a great administration that supports you. It’s not just one thing.

What advice do you have for new teachers? Don’t think you already know everything. I’ve been teaching for 26 or 27 years, and every year I learn something new. Every year I get better. So listen to your colleagues, listen to your students, and be willing to adapt. Be a part of the team.

What’s something people might not know about you? I’ve been making gingerbread houses for 30 years. I have two sons who were in the armed service—one still is. I send gingerbread houses to Afghanistan and Bosnia. My daughter taught English in South Korea, so I sent one to her.

What would you tell the community about what life is like in school? When those kids come up the stairs and say hi to me, it’s wonderful. It’s the best place in the world to work.

What are students like today? Students are considerate of each other. They want to do their best—they want to succeed.

Anything else? This is my last year of teaching. I want to have more time with my family and visit my grandchildren—I have six. My career as a teacher has been an amazing journey. I feel deeply blessed by every student I’ve ever had.

 

 

Sam Kell, industrial arts teacher, Mark Morris High School

Sam Kell practices what he teaches. At school, he introduces pre-apprenticeship students (pg. 3) to technical skills like carpentry. In his spare time, he works on his own fixer-upper house.

Where did you grow up and go to school? I spent my childhood in Kelso and Longview, and went to Catlin Elementary, Columbia Heights Elementary, Cascade Middle School and Mark Morris High School. I spent one year at Lower Columbia College and finished my final three years at Central Washington University in the industrial arts program.

Why did you get into teaching? I always liked working with people and going through the learning process. My mom is a pre-school teacher.

Who introduced you to industrial arts? My dad is a self-employed residential contractor. He flips houses and owns rentals. I started working with my dad when I was 10 or 11 years old. I was just a helping hand with sheetrock and roofs. In school I excelled in shop classes and was happiest in project-based learning.

What’s the best part about being a teacher? Building relationships with the students. Teaching is all about the relationships and the growth.

What are the students of today like? They are hard-working and task driven. People may assume students never get off their smartphone or think, “It’s not like when we were in school.” But I still see the drive in students to get things done. Sometimes it takes different teaching styles to motivate different students.

What is one thing you want to teach every student? One thing I’d like to teach every student is lifelong learning and self-evaluation. To be able to reflect on the job you just completed is a very important skill no matter what you do. I learned a long time ago, “reflect and do better.”

What would you like people to know about school? School is about learning, and failure is okay.

 Do you have hobbies? I love hunting, fishing and hiking, and I share season tickets to the Trailblazers. I’ve been a Blazers fan since elementary school. I watched Michael Jordan and Clyde Drexler play. I also own a house in Kelso—it’s a fixer upper.

 Anything else? It’s important for young people in our community to recognize their own skills and recognize what Longview has to offer. Longview is a great place.

Cascade Middle School student says, “Don’t give up.”

“Don’t give up,” is eleven-year-old Christine “CC” Carman’s message for young people. After undergoing open-heart surgery in January 2018, the Cascade Middle School seventh grader is confident she can do just about anything in life. “Even as a little kid you can do anything, it just depends on how big of an imagination you have,” Christine says.

In October of 2017 a friend of Christine’s talked about having a heart murmur as they exercised during PE class. When Christine felt her own heartbeat while the two friends were running, she could feel it skip a beat. The friend recommended she talk to her doctor.

Pre-surgery with the anesthesia doctor.

Christine’s mother Sarah Carman took Christine to her regular doctor for a visit and explained that Christine had asthma-like symptoms including shortness of breath.  The doctor listened to Christine’s heart and recommended an electrocardiogram (EKG) commonly used to detect heart problems. The EKG test came back with a conclusion of “normally abnormal”, meaning there were abnormal readings within the scope of being normal.  The doctor suggested further testing, and an appointment with a cardiologist was set.

The cardiologist’s test results were more definitive. Open-heart surgery would cure Christine’s conditions of Partial Anomalous Pulmonary Venous Return (PAPVR) and Atrial Septal Defect (ASD). With PAPVR, pulmonary veins in a person’s heart returns blood to the right atrium instead of the left atrium. This causes oxygen-rich blood to flow back to the lungs instead of to the rest of the body. ASD is a hole in the heart between the right and left atrium, which causes oxygenated blood from the left side of the heart to flow through the hole into the oxygen poor right side of the heart.

Christine said, “The doctor drew me a picture, explaining what was happening with my heart and that surgery would fix it – which kind of calmed me down.” It turns out Christine’s grandmother also had ASD, a hole in her heart that closed up naturally over time.

Surgery was scheduled at Randall Children’s Hospital in Portland. The surgery was postponed when Christine caught the flu, and then rescheduled for early 2018.  Christine didn’t want the surgery to be postponed, instead wanting to be in the hospital over Christmas to help cheer up the other kids undergoing treatment. “There were a bunch of kids without friends and family and I wanted to be there for them,” Christine said.

The day before the surgery, Christine was at her grandma and grandpa’s house, surrounded by family, but worried and anxious. She stayed up late into the night texting her friends, and woke the next morning nauseated. Her Mom sent her back to bed until it was time to leave for the hospital.

Arriving at the hospital, Christine was nervous and shaky. The anesthesia team gave Christine and her cardiologist Dr. Kaysere Christine a “pink drink which tasted nasty”, and the surgery team did another EKG and ultrasound of Christine’s heart. One of Christine’s few memories is having a stuffed bunny with her.

Christine and her cardiologist Dr. Kayser

The surgery lasted 4 hours with updates every hour, starting when the first incision was made, then when Christine went on the heart bypass machine, and finally when surgery ended. By the time the surgery finished and Christine was being wheeled into the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) her heart was beating well on its own and she was breathing without any help.

Prior to surgery, the PAPVR and ASD had caused the right side of Christine’s heart to enlarge. By the time she reached the PICU her heart had already shrunk and was returning to normal size. Christine felt better immediately, even though she caught the flu again. She felt better and had more energy being sick with the flu than she did before the surgery.

Cascade Middle School principal Mr. Rugg and counselor Mrs. Holmes visited Christine in the hospital, bringing her a teddy bear and some candy. Mrs. Enyeart emailed Christine several times to make sure everything was all right. Christine returned to school two weeks after the surgery on a part-time basis.

Upon return, classmates and teachers looked after her to make sure she got her locker open and to class.  Mr. Bechtel welcomed Christine back and let the class know to look out for her.  While her heart was now fine, her chest took time to heal from the surgery. Through cooperation with Cascade teachers, Christine made up her coursework while being out for surgery without her grades falling.

The first time Christine participated in PE class after surgery, her family realized just how sick Christine had been.  After exerting herself in PE Christine came home and told her mom, “Did you know your body is not supposed to hurt after every PE class?” What Christine’s body knew as normal – really wasn’t.  Christine had never known anything else than her body hurting after exertion.

Fast forward ten months and Christine has just finished playing on the Cascade Cavalier volleyball team. Christine was voted “Most Improved Player” for the “C” squad, and the team went undefeated for the season. “It was very fun,” she said.  During the last game, a player from the other team spiked the ball at Christine. The ball slammed Christine in the chest – but the team still got the ball back over the net. The incident did not scare Christine; she knew she would be fine.  Next, Christine is looking forward to running on the track team. She wants to run hurdle events and do the long jump.

Christine was fortunate to have her conditions discovered early; some people live their entire lives with undiscovered heart conditions.  The malfunction in Christine’s heart stunted her growth and ability to gain weight, but since the surgery in January she’s grown 6 inches and gained weight. Christine’s prognosis is for a normal life.

Christine’s not exactly sure what she wants to be when she grows up, maybe a kindergarten teacher or a nurse at Randall Children’s Hospital. Since she was in pain at Randall Children’s Hospital, “I would like to help other kids in pain,” she said

After the challenges Christine has faced she says, “I can do anything.”

MM students plan grand opening for Pearl’s Closet

Jennifer Johnson and a committee of students took on a project to create and now relocate Pearl’s Closet. The new home for Pearl’s Closet will be the student center at Mark Morris High School.

After all the work from Jennifer and her teammates in the leadership class, a team of DECA students has taken on the marketing and promotion of the grand opening event.

Shelby Hayden and Kolbea Mumma are students in Mr. McCormick’s class at Mark Morris. They have banded together to take on a project for DECA – the grand opening of Pearl’s Closet.

While Cowlitz County enjoys the lowest unemployment rate in decades at 4.9 percent some families with high school students are still struggling to find jobs and a steady place to live – this is where Pearl’s Closet comes in.

Pearl’s Closet takes donations of fashionable, clean clothing that teenagers would wear. Students who don’t have the resources to buy clothes can visit Pearl’s Closet and get clothes for free. This can include something to wear every day or for a job interview.

Shelby and Kolbea want to accomplish some noteworthy goals with their marketing plan for Pearl’s Closet.

They want to take any stigma from getting clothes for free away from Pearl’s Closet. To help with this the duo will get clothes from Pearl’s to wear and show off.

The two students also hope to get the message to parents and area residents that even though the economy has improved there are teenagers in need of good clothes – so please donate teenager-centric items.

Finally, they hope the community recognizes Mark Morris High School as not just being a great school, but a contributor to the community.

The grand opening is November 1 at 11:30 a.m. To donate contact Mark Morris High School at 360-575-7663 or email Mr. McCormick.

R.A. Long High School and Monticello Middle School named “Schools of Distinction”

The Center for Educational Effectiveness (CEE) announced 91 school across Washington State were named 2018 “Schools of Distinction”. Included in the list were four-time winner R. A. Long High School and first-time winner Monticello Middle School.

Being named a school of distinction is a prestigious award recognizing sustained improvement over a five-year period in English, math or graduation rate. Being recognized as a school of distinction means being in the top 5 percent of improvement for their levels.

Middle schools are judged based on improvement in math and English over a five-year period. Monticello Middle School has shown outstanding growth, especially in math. Superintendent Dan Zorn said, “The effort and results of Principal Scott Merzoian and his dedicated group of teachers and support staff has been fantastic.”

R. A. Long High School was recognized as a “School of Distinction” for the fourth time. High schools are graded on their graduation rate. R. A. Long’s preliminary 2018 graduation rate is 96 percent, which is one of the highest graduation rates in the state. “Principal Rich Reeves and his team do amazing work every day,” Superintendent Zorn said.

Overall only five schools in the greater Southwest region of Washington State received School of Distinction awards, with two of those being from the Longview Public School system.

St. Helens Elementary practices 21 days of kindness

October is bullying prevention month across the nation. The goal is to raise awareness about bullying and prevent bullying from taking place.

At St. Helens Elementary school they are taking bullying awareness and prevention to a higher level in October by participating in the 21 Days of Kindness event.

“21 Days of Kindness” is a national effort to promote kindness as a way of preventing bullying. Students are encouraged to commit 5 acts of kindness each day and record them on a long, thin slip of paper. The pieces of paper are collected each day, then folded into a circle and stapled together to create a chain.

Over the entire month of October St. Helens Principal Stephanie Teel expects more than 2,000 kindness slips will be formed into a kindness chain. The chain is then hung on the gymnasium wall, with a goal of having the chain circle the entire gym.

“Kindness is part of our school pledge”, Teel said, “And the kids are having fun.”

When asked about participation Teel said, “The kids were super engaged once they saw the chain of kindness.”

The goal is to reduce the number of behavior referrals, raise awareness about bullying and prevent bullying.

Leadership is also part of the event. Each day four students are chosen for their good behavior to collect and count the kindness slips, then fold and staple them into a chain.

“We’re looking for the student leaders to be positive role models in the school,” Teel said.

Once the event ends the number of kindness slips will be submitted to organization founders. The founders will then send a personalized YouTube message to the school congratulating them.
