A good teacher has been defined as an individual who can understand those who are not good at explaining, and explain to those who are not very good at understanding.  Dwight D. Eisenhower

This is so true of Shalyn.  As long as I have know her(which is a very long time) she has always been a kind and caring person.  She is also very happy and  positive.   Shalyn is always willing to give it a try, no matter what is whether it is ice skating/dancing or finding solutions for each students’ needs.  She  does not give up and works until she finds something that will help.  She lives for the success and happiness of others, especially her students. It is no coincidence that her classroom is a place where her students feel safe, valued, and successful. Shalyn is a loving and hardworking person who brings happiness and support to everyone she works with.

 Congratulations Shalyn! We are so lucky to have you at Barnett!
