I am Ms. Shammanika Renfro and I am excited to be serving as the Human Services and Education & Training teacher in the CTE Department. This is my 12th year of teaching and my 2nd year at Hightower High School.
I am a mother of four wonderful children and a GiGi of two. I enjoy spending time with family, creating things of all sorts, cooking, traveling, and attending sporting events. I graduated from Lamar University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Family & Consumer Science in 2007 and received my Master’s Degree in Educational Leadership in 2013 from Grand Canyon University.
Education has been my passion from a very young age. I began my teaching career August of 2007 as an elementary school special education teacher. I have always loved being in the school setting and working with children. My goal is the academic, social, and emotional success of all my students. It is my hope that each child will come to the classroom eager to learn, succeed, and leave inspired to lead. It is an honor and privilege to work at a campus that will provide the support to make this a reality. I look forward to a great and memorable school year!
