Parents and students,

My name is Shelbi Simon, and I am teaching English I and English III this year. I am also coaching junior high girls' volleyball. I have taught junior high level English the last 4 years, but I am extremely thrilled to have the opportunity to delve into freshman and junior level English classes this year, and more than anything, I am so very grateful to have the chance to teach my former students again. I look forward to an amazing adventure through literature and writing this year. 

About me:

I am married to my high school sweetheart, Ethan Simon. We both graduated from Italy High School in 2011. After high school, I went on to Texas A&M and attained a Bachelor of Science degree in Interdisciplinary Studies with a focus on 4th-8th grades English and Social Studies. I am certified in English as a Second Language, 4-8 English and Social Studies, and 7-12 English/Language Arts and Reading. Ethan and I do not have children yet, but we have 7 dogs. What can I say? We are crazy dog people! :) 

In my spare time, I enjoy traveling, reading, watching Netflix, shopping, and doing DIY projects. I have a passion for mission work and traveling overseas to share hope and love with cultures and generations of people who have lost hope. I have a passion to do the same thing here in our own backyard, which is one reason why I feel called to the teaching field and specifically, here in Italy.  

Random things I love:

-Fall

-Coke Zero

-Christmas 

-Cactus

-Dogs

-Colorado

-Sports

-Fiction stories

-Colorful pens

-Cool, crisp mornings

-Hiking

-Target

-The color gray


If you need to contact me, the best way is through email. My email address is ssimon@italyisd.org. Please don't hesitate to contact me regarding your child!  I know this year will be a great year, and I am excited for the things to come!

Hint: I know that school supplies are expensive. I would suggest looking at Dirt Cheap (There is a store in Hillsboro and Ennis). I have found that they have good supplies for cheap, but you often have to rummage through stuff. The good news is: they often have the school supplies in one general location.
