Hello! My name is Mrs. Shelton. This is my fourth year teaching, and all have been in Wake County. I was a fourth-grade teacher my first year at DDE and moved up to fifth grade the 2020-21 school year. I’m from Apex, North Carolina and graduated from Apex High School. I received my elementary education degree at UNC-Chapel Hill (Go Heels!). Fun Fact: I just became Mrs. Shelton this past March after getting married to my wonderful husband! I love lifting weights, going on walks with my dog, Kora, and spending time with my family and friends. I love getting to learn alongside my students and be a small part of their learning journey in life. I love the DDE community and look forward to each new year!
