Meet Shari Gateley, English Teacher

What’s your first and last name?

What do you teach / what is your ‘title’ at school?

How are you involved in education?

  • I teach AP Language and AP Literature at Putnam City West High School. I am also the English Department chair and serve as a new teacher mentor, senior class sponsor, and on the schools guiding coalition and title I committee.

What does your ideal school or classroom look like?

  • Design Thinking in action – Design Thinking is a different approach to PBL.
