da Vinci Arts Middle School

Who am I?
My name is Jasmine Spiegel and 2016-2017 will be my third year of teaching (though I did miss half of my second year while I underwent treatment for breast cancer!) I received my MAT for English Language Arts at Lewis & Clark College in 2014, and I'm so excited to be able to build my career here in the incredible community of da Vinci! I grew up here in the Portland area and received my BA in Social Science (with an Anthropology concentration and a minor in Photography) from Marylhurst University.
In my free time, I love to write, read, make photographs, hike, camp, paint, and play video games. My interests are extremely varied and I always find myself wishing I had more time to do everything I love. I am excited to share my passion for learning, critical thinking, literature, art, and culture in the classroom, and to learn all about each student's interests and skills.
