I love Shackelford Elementary! I have been a teacher here for 12 years and love my students and parents! The teachers work together to provide the best educational opportunities for each student. I work with all grade levels, and it is amazing to see my students each year flourish in their general education classroom with our special education support. They are treated inclusively in all activities and lessons, regardless of any disabilities. The growth each child makes throughout their time at Shackelford enables them to progress academically and socially so that they are ready to make the transition to Jr. High and succeed in an inclusive environment with their peers. Our school provides amazing support for my students and I am proud to be an educator at Shackelford Elementary.

Shackelford is home! I love the welcoming feeling I get the minute I walk through the door. Our staff is so friendly and helpful, I couldn't have asked for a better campus to work for! You can definitely feel the spirit when you enter our campus, you will see students smiling, laughing and overall enjoying school. Come join us at Shack as we push our students to strive for their highest goals while also nurturing their growing minds and personalities.

I believe we have amazing teachers working with awesome students to provide the best educational opportunities possible so that these students will be successful. I have 4 children within WISD, one is currently at Shackelford, and I believe that all of the teachers and schools have their best interest in mind. I am proud to be a part of WISD as a parent and an educator of young minds!
