Mrs. Shelly Kleist

I am excited to return to DES this year!  

I have 22 years experiecence in education and have taught 1st, 2nd, and 3rd grades. I have also spent time as a Literacy Coach for OCS.

Originally from upstate New York, my husband (Mr. Ken) and I decided to head for coastal North Carolina in 2010. We love living in Sneads Ferry and are happy to call NC home.

I have three kids: Abby a sophomore at UNCW, Ky a DHS junior, and James a DES 2nd grader. 

Our family spends time cheering each other on at sporting events, boating and camping.
