Degrees and Certifications:
My name is ShaCarol Stewart and I am the Deaf Education/Common Core classroom teacher at Walnut Creek Elementary School. I’ve been teaching deaf and hard of hearing students since 2011. I have primarily served as an itinerant teacher for deaf and hard of hearing students. I traveled to different schools serving my students in a one-on-one setting focusing on listening, language, and vocabulary development. My transfer to Walnut Creek marks my first experience as a classroom teacher. I’m excited to be a part of the WCES staff and the Deaf Education Team!
I grew up in Fayetteville, NC, but currently call Raleigh home. I attended UNC-Greensboro and graduated with my degree in Deaf Education K-12. I then relocated here to the Raleigh area to begin teaching nearby in Franklin County Schools. After 4 years of itinerant teaching in Franklin County, I then came to Wake County where I also served as an itinerant teacher. Currently, my place is in the classroom teaching deaf and hard of hearing students at Walnut Creek Elementary.
Additionally, I hold a Master’s in Education in Reading Specialist certification. I also have occasionally worked as a sign language interpreter in educational settings.
In my free time, I enjoy going to a nearby park and taking a walk, going for a bike ride, and/or having a picnic. I like watching movies, doing puzzles, playing games, and spending time with friends, family, and loved ones. I love to read poems by Shel Silverstein, quotes, sayings, and any words of inspiration. One of my favorite poems is called, “All I Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten” by Robert Fulghum. Like the example in this poem, I strive to live my life by The Golden Rule: “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.”
