Hello fabulous fifth graders and parents. My name is Ms. Shepard and I am going to be your fifth grade teacher! This will be my first year at Ridgemont Elementary. However, I am no stranger to teaching. I have taught fifth grade for the past six years and grades 6th -8th for five years prior to that. I love fifth grade and look forward to the fun we will have exploring and learning!
I graduated from the University of Houston with a Bachelors degree in Psychology. I continued my passion for teaching by obtaining my Master's Degree in Educational Administration.
When I'm not teaching I love to read a good book or curl up and watch an old movie.
I believe this year will be filled with educational opportunities that will guide students growth which will maximize their potential.
