Degrees and Certifications:

Ms. Kolby Shumate

Hello!  My name is Kolby Shumate, and I am excited to join the Buccaneer crew this year! I grew up in Greensboro and graduated from NC State University in 2014 with a degree in Elementary Education and a minor in Spanish.  I have been teaching in Wake County for the past seven years and recently earned my National Board Certification.  I am looking forward to working with the students and families at Bryan Road this year!  Third grade will be a fun year full of challenges and new things to learn, and I am eager to help students grow and achieve their goals.  I love creating a welcoming, positive classroom environment and making learning engaging for all students.  

When I am not at school, I love reading, working out, listening to music, and playing with my crazy cat named Binx.  I can’t wait to meet my third graders and get started on an amazing school year!
