August Deshais

Kindergarten Teacher

I teach kindergarten at a semi-rural pre-k through second grade school in far Northern California. Beyond my duties in the classroom, I also serve as a member of our district leadership team and facilitate professional development in science for grades K-12 through the Humboldt County Office of Education. I am a 2015 PBS LearningMedia digital innovator, and a National Writing Project teacher-consultant. When not teaching, planning to teach, or thinking about teaching, you will find me outside with my wife and three children.
