Degrees and Certifications:

  • Hi Everyone! My name is Shelly Alford and I am a 4th grade teacher and this is my 22nd year in education. I am very excited for another virtual year of teaching. 

    I am a mother and a grandmother. I love my family and enjoy every moment we get to spend together. 

    For the educational background - I graduated from UNCW for both my BAed and my MAed. I am a lifelong learner and enjoy learning from the kids every year. (Several find things I did not know each year)

    I have taught Kindergarten, 2nd, 3rd and 4th grade.  I have also been an Instructional Coach for K-6th grade. Having a mixed grade experience has given me a great tool belt full of so many tools that I can use throughout the years. I am so grateful for all of the education and training that I have received and l look forward to continuing the learning process and I get to know your very special person this year.  

    Thank you for allowing me the honor of teaching your child.
