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 2020-2021 school year will mark my 12th 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, which is 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 4th year with Vista.
In addition to English, I have also taught journalism and creative writing. While earning my M. Ed. through 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 9 years, and we have 2 children: Renee, 7, and Owen, 5. We also have a dog, Holly, a black and white border collie. Our newest addition is a 9 month old filly, Willow.
Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns. E-mail is my perferred method of communication, and I will do my best to reply within the asynchronous window each afternoon during distance learning.
