Jodi White

Faculty, Education

Phone:(206) 592-4085

Hi there! I’m Jodi White and I’m full-time faculty in the Education Department.

I’ve been teaching at Highline since fall of 2005. My background is in early learning – I’ve been a substitute teacher, a teacher, a lead, a program supervisor and director. I was the director of two different programs in Seattle and have also taught as a teacher in a cooperative preschool, worked as a coach and a consultant, and was a trainer for the Washington State STARS system. Currently I’m tenured here at Highline and teach numerous classes in the Education Department, as well as Critical Thinking for Equity, a humanities class housed in the Diversity and Global Studies Department.

Philosophically, I’m a social constructivist, meaning that I believe that we all enter into situations with prior knowledge that we use to create new knowledge when presented with new information. Further, that this knowledge is constructed in the context of trusting relationships – without trust, it’s difficult to take the risks necessary for learning. I’m also a social activist because I understand that our lives (and education) are impacted by our identities – race/ethnicity, class, gender/gender identity, sexual orientation, ability, religion…all of these and more impact our experience and how we see the world.

On a more personal note, I prefer that you call me Jodi and I typically use female pronouns. I live in White Center where I’ve been since 2010. I like to garden, am a mediocre bowler but bowl on a neighborhood league, and am a bit of a foodie, an interest that I share with my partner, John.

Curious about anything else? Feel free to ask me! I look forward to getting to know you.
