About Me

My name is Nicole Shelby and I am a 4th grade teacher in Kentucky.  I have been teaching for twelve years.  During that time, I earned a Master's degree and achieved National Board Certification.  To be honest, teaching is my life!  I can't think of anything else I would rather do.  I thank God every day for leading me into this profession.  I don't have children of my own, so I am so thankful I have the opportunity to work with kids and love them (even if I only have them for a year).  Currently, I teach ELA, Science, and Social Studies.

On the home front, I have been married to my husband, David for twelve years.  We enjoy spending time together and traveling.  I definitely look forward to our summer vacation to the beach....generally to Jamaica or the Bahamas. 

It is my hope that you are able to take ideas from this site and apply them to your own classroom.  I love the thought of being able to share my creative teaching style with others.  Thank you for visiting my blog.  I hope you will visit often.
