Bachelor's Degree in Collaborative Education from the University of Montevallo, 2015
Hello! My name is Chelsea Shanks, and I teach 4th and 5th grade self-contained special education at Thompson Intermediate School. I have 3 AMAZING paraprofessionals that I couldn't live without: Mrs. Sherrie, Mrs. Tracy, and Mrs. Lisa. I am so excited to begin my 2nd year teaching at TIS! I live in Chilton County with my husband, Jeffrey. I graduated from Maplesville High School in 2011. I attended the University of Montevallo where I received my Bachelor's Degree in Collaborative Education (K-6). I am currently enrolled at the University of West Alabama working toward earning my Master's Degree in Special Education (K-6). I love being an advocate for all children with special needs.
In addition to teaching, I enjoy shopping and spending time with my three nephews. A few of my favorite things are ice cream, Target, and Converse shoes.
