Ms. Shelby Gabrielson
"Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire" - William Butler Yeats. My name is Shelby Gabrielson and I strongly consider the "lighting of a fire" for all students my personal responsibility, as a 21st century educator. Much like students, no two "fires" are the same. Learning styles, language proficiencies, background knowledge, and interests vary amongst students. Despite these collective challenges, I expect all students to master the same concepts, principles, and skills, as outlined by the Texas Education Agency (TEA). In order to achieve this expectancy and "lighting of a fire", I meet students where they are and take them to the next level with differentiated instruction. Differentiated instruction provides several learning options, different paths to learning, and appropriate levels of challenge for each student and feeds their "fire" in an engaging, meaningful way. I am looking forward to contributing to the learning and growth of all students at Encino Park Elementary this school year!
