Hello, my name is Shonda Sheets. This year I will be teaching 5th grade at the Alliance Middle School. The last three years I was a third grade teacher at Grandview Elementary. I am excited to be working with this grade level. This is my 20th year of teaching. WOW! I can't believe it! Where has the time gone. I earned a bachelor's degree in education from Nebraska Wesleyan University in Lincoln. I am continuing my education at Chadron State College, where I plan to earn a master's degree in curriculum education. My goal is to have that completed this fall.
I have been married for 20 years. My husband, Mark, is an Engineer on the BNSF Railroad. We have a daughter, Kayla, that is 4 years old. I enjoy reading, camping with my family, and just being a mom.
My goal as a teacher is to help each one of my students reach their own maximum learning potential. I will challenge them to learn and achieve more than even they thought they could. I enjoy guiding children to think, question, and discover new things every day. My aim is to make my students' school year as enjoyable, successful, and memorable as possible!
