My name is Shelby Willis. I have been teaching almost 21 years as of now. I have taught Kindergarten and first grade in the district I grew up in, Pasadena ISD in Houston. I enjoy using technology to leverage my student’s learning in the classroom. I also enjoy teaching others what I know, especially other teachers. I have recently implemented “Appy Hour” at my school, a place to share digital learning ideas.
I have been married for almost 21 years and I have two children, Tannor who is a junior in high school, and Ainsley who is in 6th grade. We are also becoming guardians of my son’s 16 year old best friend. I have always used my kids as guinea pigs to new teaching ideas and new technology. They have surpassed me in technology as of now.
I am a fluent user of Windows and all it’s components. I am a novice user of MAC and I am just beginning my journey of using IPADS in my classroom, as I just won a grant.
