Hi! My name is Shana McMurtrey and I am so excited to be teaching Kindergarten at North Jackson Elementary!
The 2013-2014 school year will be my 13th year as a teacher. I taught 2nd grade for one year and Kindergarten for 7 years at Red Cross Elementary. I also taught Kindergarten at North Jackson Elementary for 2 years and 2nd grade for 2 years.
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 on my Nook, auditioning for plays at BarnLot Theater, listening to music, traveling somewhere new, working in my garden, or spending time with my 4-legged friends at home..........3 cocker spaniels named Elliot, Allie, and Ella!!
I look forward to making this year at NJE a great one!
