Denise Briggs Potter (Ms. Potter)
I'm excited to be teaching Learning Strategies to grades 9-12, and English 9 With Support. My career background is in writing and teaching. I began my career as a business writer and later decided to write for fun while pursuing my interest in teaching. Along with my special education certification, I have a language arts endorsement and have taught English 9, English 9 With Support, and Learning Strategies. My goal as your student's teacher is to enable your child to experience the relevance of what they are learning while realizing their individual talents, learning style, and special place in the world. Please feel free to contact me (email is generally best) if you have questions or concerns about your student's progress.
I've lived on Bainbridge Island for 30 years and have three grown children that graduated from BHS. They each had different learning styles and personalities, which I believe both helped prepare me for teaching and instilled a passion for helping every child learn and succeed.
