WLHS Math Teacher Kathleen Terner Continues to Inspire School Community
Posted by West Linn-Wilsonville on 11/20/2020 8:00:00 AM
The past several months have been challenging for everyone across the world. While West Linn-Wilsonville students, parents, teachers, and community members alike have all adapted and adjusted on a seemingly daily basis to ever-changing circumstances, perhaps no one has persevered more than West Linn High School Math Teacher Kathleen Terner.
Like her students, Kathleen has taken to Comprehensive Distance Learning, adjusting to virtual learning, ZOOM classes, and Google Classroom. But her resilience dates back further than that.
Kathleen was diagnosed with throat cancer in November, 2019. She soon underwent surgery and began radiation and chemotherapy treatments, all the while continuing to teach her students at West Linn High School. She taught lessons for a period of time using a microphone to amplify her voice, but remained committed to teaching. In April, just weeks after the start of the pandemic, Kathleen learned that her cancer was in remission. It was the first of many achievements — something that would become a recurring theme for Kathleen in the months that have followed.
When West Linn High School seniors graduated in June and teachers finished their work for the school year, Kathleen decided to embark on another challenge — this one in the form of an eight-week motorcycle road trip across the country. To add to the remarkable feat, she decided she would be making the journey alone.

Welcome to the West Linn-Wilsonville School District!
Our incredible students, talented staff, supportive and dedicated community make this a tremendous place in which to learn and lead.
Our school district guides us with a compelling vision question, “How do we create learning communities for the greatest thinkers and most thoughtful people…for the world?”
This question challenges us to continually hone our practices and skills in creating exceptional learning environments for our students. The question also challenges us to implement practices that help our students grow as thoughtful citizens and compassionate humanitarians. Together, the vision question prompts us to continually engage our students’ minds and hearts. As the late poet, Maya Angelou declares, “Do the best you can until you know better. Then when you know better, do better.”
We pledge to do our best when working with the children entrusted in our care. This year holds great promise, great opportunities and great accomplishments for each of them.
