Mrs. Shaffer's Class
Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year! I am excited to get to know a new group of students and their families! This will be my 17th year teaching. I am originally from La Vista, Nebraska and a graduate of Papillion - LaVista High School. I graduated from College of Saint Mary with my Bachelors Degree in elementary (K-6) and early childhood education. While at CSM I was also a member of the golf, softball and basketball teams. I received my Masters Degree from Peru State College in Curriculum and Instruction with an Emphasis in Technology. I have taught several grades on my educational journey including 2nd, 4th, 5th and 6th. I am excited to begin this next chapter here in Mount Ayr. Go Raiders and Raiderettes!!
I have been married to my husband for over 15 years. We actually met while we were both teaching and coaching basketball. He is currently serving as Superintendent of Bedford Community Schools and Mount Ayr Community School districts. We have four wonderful children who keep us very busy! During my free time I love to head to the lake, read, bike ride and spend time with my family!
I am also excited to get back into coaching athletics with the schools. I will be helping coach the middle school girls volleyball and basketball teams as well as assist the high school golf program.
Feel free to contact me with any questions you may have!
