Degrees and Certifications:
Ms. Kathy Pedersen
I completed my bachelor's at Western Oregon State College (now WOU) in 1990 and have been teaching ever since. I am in my third year at Scappose (and 28th year overall). I have a degree in Language Arts, Social Studies and Secondary Education, and I received my Standard Certificate in 1997 in Social Studies. My career began in Alaska in a rural village where I taught all native Yu'piks, and I have taught everything from fourth grade to college-level courses in English and social studies I am currently Language Arts Department Chair and AVID Site Coordinator. I love working at Scappoose with the best staff ever and teaching the great kids who attend SHS.
I have a husband, two adult children (both educators), and a cat. I have three addictions for which there is no cure...reading, travel and board games. My husband and I are slowly being pushed out of our house by games and books!
