Shelly Butler joins us this year on our Kindergarten team. In the past she has taught Pre-K, Kindergarten and first grade. She particularly enjoys Kindergarten because she feels that it is such a fun and joyful age. She is excited to watch the youngest of the Blacksmiths bloom with knowledge and understanding and claims that she loves learning from them as much as the teaching part!
She grew up in East Texas and always knew she wanted to be a teacher. After college, she married her high school sweetheart, Justin, and began her dream of teaching early childhood. She has two young boys, Nolan (grade 2) and Rhett (4 years). Her hobbies include camping, running, cycling, traveling, baseball and spending time with friends and family.
