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 third year teaching in the United States and also my third 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
