My name is Nathan Shafer. I am certifying to teach secondary art, student teaching at Romig Middle School in Anchorage. For the last few years, I have been teaching in an SLC (structured learning class) for kids with autism. I am hoping to go back into SLC teaching after I certify, using some new techniques I learned from student teaching in art. I make new media artwork, mostly in augmented reality and digital humanities. I am doing this program with my wife, Joelle Howald. This is a picture of me last year that a student made. He told me it would make me feel better, if I was upset and looked at it.
