Mrs. Shouse

Hello First Grade Families!  Here is a little bit about me:  I was raised just outside of Buffalo, NY in a small town called Derby.  I enjoyed all the snow when I was little, but I sure don't miss it as an adult.  I graduated with a B.S in Elementary Education from SUNY Fredonia.  I was so eager to start teaching, I moved to North Carolina the day I graduated from college.  This will be my 17th year at Wendell Elementary!  I taught 2nd grade for 3 years, and the rest have been in 1st.  My favorite part of teaching is watching my students grow as learners both socially and academically.  I have been married to my husband Michael for 13 years.  I have 2 daughters-Emma Kate will be in 5th grade, and Madi Grace will be in 3rd grade.  I enjoy spending time with family and friends, trips to the beach, and playing with our new Goldendoodle puppy, Paisley.
