Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Tonya Shaw
I am very proud to be the teacher-facilitator of Gifted and Talented services at Southridge Elementary!
Southridge Elementary has been my school home for 17 of my 25 years of teaching. I taught 5th grade for 4 years before moving into GT-land, where things are different every day!
I am a Missouri native and still love to cheer on my Mizzou Tigers, much to the chagrin of my Longhorn co-workers. My hubby is Mark and we have two amazing children. Owen is 15 and in the 10th grade. His free time is spent on the baseball diamond or batting cage. Abby is 19 and is a sophomore at the University of Missouri where she is majoring in journalism and political science.
I am a voracious reader have a book with me at all times. I also LOVE to scrapbook, make cards, and learn about new crafty things! My weekends are usually spent at the baseball field, at a Stars hockey game, or just cheering on whatever team happens to be on my television!
At Southridge, I am involved with the Building Leadership Team, Skyward Gradebook Mentor teacher as well as the Campus Mentor for new teachers.
