  • Welcome to Mrs. (Brittany) Shapley's page! I am so looking forward to a smooth and successful school year with you. First, a little bit about me. The 2022-2023 school year will mark my 14th year teaching. For the first 6 years of my career, I taught at a small charter school in Carson City, Nevada. I spent the following year teaching Gifted/Talented middle schoolers in Reno, Nevada, where I called home for 10 years before my husband and I decided to move to Folsom in June 2016. For one year during the 2016-2017 school year, I enjoyed teaching 11th and 12th grade English at Elk Grove High School, but not the commute! This will be my 6th year at Vista.

    In addition to English, I have also taught journalism and creative writing. While earning my M. Ed. from the University of Nevada, Reno, I was employed as the assistant editor of a local health magazine, and journalism is a subject I continue to love. 

    On a personal note, my husband (Glenn) and I have been married for 10 years, and we have 2 children: Renee, 8, and Owen, 6. We welcomed a young horse, Willow, to the family during the fall of 2020, and she will be three in March. We also adopted a six-year-old border collie/corgi mix named Pete in October 2021. 

    Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns. E-mail is my preferred method of communication, and I will do my best to reply within 48 hours of receiving your e-mail.
