Shelly Spain

Welcome to 6th Grade English Language Arts

Hello everyone! Welcome to 6th grade Reading! I am super excited to be your teacher and even more excited to get to know you. We will have fun times in this class if we can be respectful of others and respectful of our time together. 

Let me tell you a bit about myself. My name is Shelly Spain. I have a wonderful family that consists of my husband and three awesome children. I have both Bachelor's and Master's degrees from the great Jacksonville State University. I have been teaching since 2003. I will let you do the math as to how long that has been! I love every day that I come to "school." I don't refer to it as "work" because I enjoy what I do every single day. 

In this class, I hope you learn a love for Reading. A lot of students now days rely on their cell phones for entertainment. Let me just tell you, a good book is way more interesting than anything you may find on your cell phone. I cannot wait to introduce you to some of the great authors and books that will reel you in and make you want to read more.
