Hi!!  My name is Shana McMurtrey and I am so excited to be teaching Kindergarten at North Jackson Elementary! 
The 2009-2010 school year will be my 9th year as a teacher.  I taught 2nd grade for one year and Kindergarten for 8 years at Red Cross Elementary. 
I have degrees in English and Language Arts, Elementary Education, and Elementary Counseling.  I am also National Board Certified!
When I am not at school, you might find me reading a great book, listening to music, travelling somewhere new, working in my garden, volunteering at the animal shelter or spending time with my 4-legged kids at home......3 cocker spaniels named Elliot, Allie and Ella! 
Kindergarten is my absolute most favorite grade because I  seeing just how much my students learn and grow throughout the year!
I look forward to meeting you and making our first year at NJE a great one!
