More about Ms. Paulson
Welcome Message Fall 2021
Hello! Welcome scholars and their families to a new school year!
My name is Gina Paulson and I am super excited to join The ASK academy this year teaching 6th grade Earth Science. Although new to ASK, this school year marks nearly 17 years as a teacher and 3 years as an assistant, in all 20 years in education. My experience includes work at the Utah Schools for the Deaf and Blind, The Atlanta Area School for the Deaf, Groner K-8 School, and most recently Cielo Azul Elementary with Rio Rancho Public Schools.
It was my time at Groner K-8, in Hillsboro, Oregon, that I strengthen and developed my love of teaching science. This amazing, tiny school became one of the first schools in their district to develop a STEAM program and I had the honor of being a part of the beginning stages working directly with the students and the community creating an agricultural based STEAM program that serves K-8th grade. This incredible school left an indelible mark on my heart and The ASK Academy reminds me a great deal of my dear old school. I look forward to developing new relationships here and I am excited to be here!
Science is a passion of mine and I am so lucky to witness your joy in observing, exploring, and learning all about the world around us.
