Mrs. Heather Shelton
I am excited to be 3rd Grade Teacher at Grandiew Elementary School. I know that we will become a family and learn together. I am in starting my 17th year of teaching. I am a graduate of Tusculum College where I recieved my Master's Degree in Elementary Education. I have recieved my Education Specialist Degree in Curriculum and Instruction from LMU. I love teaching and knowing that what I do in my classroom paves the way for my students to learn in the future. I can't wait to work with students this year in 3rd grade.
I am blessed to be a part of ETSU's iSLICEE program, so we will have a student teacher Alyssa Hatley who will be with us throughout most of the year. Ms. Hatley and I will be working together to incorporate technology to make engaging lessons. My third graders will have access to working in my classroom with coding, robots, and various digital components to make learning interesting to them.
I am frequently sharing what we are doing in the classroom on Twitter. Please follow me if you would like to an inside peek into our classroom. @HShelton3rd
I am a native of Greene County, where I graduated from South Greene High School. I am married to Scottie and we have two girls, Sydney (14) and Bree (10). We currently reside in Limestone. I enjoy the reading, the outdoors, and volleyball. We love volleyball so much, we built a full size sand court in our backyard this past spring and we enjoy having girls over to play in the sand to improve volleyball skills.
