Hello Everyone! My name is Jennifer Shaffer and this is my third year at Morton Elementary! My husband and I have lived here for almost 6 years and we are here because of the military. We just had our second baby in July. We are thrilled to have a son and a daughter. I am originally from Ohio and I love my Buckeyes! I love to travel home to Ohio when I can and visit family. My husband is from Maryland so we also travel to Maryland to often to see my step-daughter frequently. I love being able to relax and spend time with my family when I get the chance. I like reading a good book when I get the time along with a nice cup of coffee. I look forward to this year in second grade!
I graduated with an Associate's Degree in Early Childhood Education from Anne Arundel Community College in Maryland in 2013. I then moved here to finish at University of North Carolina Wilmington where I graduated with a degree in Elementary Education in 2015. I finished my Masters of Education in Reading Education from East Carolina University in May 2019.
This is my fifth year teaching. My first year I start half way through a school year. I have only taught second grade so far and I really enjoy it! Before becoming a teacher I taught preschool for two years in Maryland and North Carolina. After preschool I was a teacher's assistant at Hunters Creek Elementary. I completed my teacher internship here at Morton in Fall of 2015. I then went to Stateside Elementary to be a second grade teacher and I am now happy to be back at Morton Elementary starting my third year here!
