Ms. Shaeffer

Hello!! My name is Ms. Shaeffer, and I am on my 5th year teaching High School English, and my 4th year teaching dance. Prior to teaching high school I taught Pre-Kindergarten at a daycare, and I taught dance at a handful of dance studios. With that being said, I am the Pep Squad coach, and I teach English II along with Academic Literature.

For English II and Academic Literature we will be using the following websites throughout the year: Google Classroom, Study Sync, and iLit. Make sure you go to Google Classroom for all class materials and assignments, this is where I will post for students to know what is going on in class. All students should have recieved an invite to join their Google Classroom. Students will need to use their NEISD email in order to access the class material.

A small bit about me: I am not from Texas, I LOVE the colour purple, animals are the absolute best part of life, coffee keeps me alive (haha), I've always wanted to be a teacher, and I love winter (cold weather is the best, especially snow!). I look forward to teaching this year, though it will have new obstacles, all obstacles are meant to be overcome; so we just have to work together.

-Much Love, 

               Ms. Shaeffer
