My name is Whitney Shearman and I am excited to be teaching 5th grade at Blazier Elementary this year!
I graduated from the University of Georgia with Bachelors of Arts in Spanish Language and Literature and Film Studies in 2009. In 2014, I graduated with a Master's in Teaching English as a Second Language from the University of Southern California. I have a passion for children and have worked as a teacher, camp counselor, tutor, inclusion aide, nanny, and babysitter over the past 15 years.
This is my second year teaching in the United States and also second year teaching at Blazier. I taught for a year in South Korea and two years in Spain. I love to travel and have visited 18 countries so far.
Here are some of my FAVORITE things:
Book: My favorite children's books are the Harry Potter series and anything by Roald Dahl or Dr. Seuss
Hobbies: Traveling, art, reading, and hiking
Music: David Bowie, classic rock, alternative rock
Subject in school as a child: Social Studies, Language Arts, and Art
