Mrs. Shelly McManus      

Vineyard Ranch Elementary


5th Grade Teacher


Mrs. McManus has been affiliated with NEISD for many years, dating back to her own school days from 1st through 12th grades. She will ever be true to the white and blue, the Brahmas of Douglas MacArthur High School! After high school, Mrs. McManus earned her teaching degree at NTSU with a certification in Elementary Education and a minor in English.

Upon college graduation, she began her teaching career in NEISD at Jackson Middle School where she taught 6th-7th Grade English, Reading, and Theater Arts. After four years there, Mrs. McManus became a mom and started a new, full time job at home.

While raising her family, she also taught at Encino Park, Longs Creek, and then later at Hardy Oak.

When Vineyard Ranch Elementary opened, Mrs. McManus said good-bye to her friends at Hardy Oak and ventured the trail ride to the Ranch. All experiences with NEISD have been extremely positive and memorable. She remains steadfast and true, and in love with teaching her students.

Mrs. McManus enjoys being involved with children and their families. She has had numerous opportunities to grow during her teaching career. Although beginning in grades 6 and 7, she has also taught grades 4, 3, and 1. While acruing years of experience in various grade levels, she also earned her ESL and Gifted/Talented certifications, served as Grade Level Chairman, was a member of the faculty Lighthouse Team at Hardy Oak and Vineyard Ranch, received training in the Quest Skills for Adolescence program, and was a sponsor of the NJHS.

Believing teachers make a difference one child at a time, and knowing the love for learning is a true gift, continues to inspire Mrs. McManus every day.
