Hello! My name is Chrissy Shepard, and I teach fifth and sixth grade English here at Calera Elementary School. I began my teaching career at Calera in 2013. I am certified in Elementary Education as well as English and Journalism, and I have been passionate about writing my entire life. I come from a big family of teachers, and I am happy to carry on the tradition. I graduated from Rock Creek High School in 2008 and from Southeastern Oklahoma State University in 2012. I married my husband, Mark, in 2013, and our first child, Abby, was born January 9, 2015. The newest addition to the family, Levi, was born August 29, 2017. We enjoy spending time with our family and friends and traveling when we can.
I hope I can help your child meet some of his or her academic goals by the end of this school year, and I look forward to the time I have them in class!
