Hi! My name is Shana McMurtrey and I am so excited to be teaching Kindergarten at North Jackson Elementary!
The 2017-2018 school year will be my 17th year as a teacher. I taught 2nd grade and Kindergarten for 7 years at Red Cross Elementary. I have also taught 2nd grade as well as Kindergarten at North Jackson.
I have degrees in English and Language Arts and Elementary Education and a Master's Degree in Elementary Counseling. I am also National Board Certified for children ages 3-8.
When I am not at school, you might find me reading a great book, auditioning for plays at BarnLot Theater, listening to music, traveling somewhere new, working in my garden, kayaking, fostering for the animal shelter or spending time with my 4-legged friends at home..........2 cocker spaniels named Allie, and Ella and a cocker mix named Emerson!!
I look forward to making this year at NJE a great one!
