Degrees and Certifications:
My name is Abbey Shaffer and I am the new art teacher to Jefferys Grove Elementary. I started my art teaching career in 2001 at Lead Mine Elementary after graduating from Western Michigan University with a k-12 art education degree. Lead Mine was my home for 15 years, but in 2015 I decided to make some life changes and stay home with my three children. For the past 4 years, I have been spending time at home, as well as training for Ironman 70.3 races, and teaching group fitness classes at O2 Fitness. I enjoyed my time away from, but missed teaching art a lot, and am EXTREMELY excited to be back!
