My name is Kimberlea Shaw and I am originally from Fairmont, West Virginia. I have always enjoyed working with children so it seemed that I was destined to be a teacher! I received my Bachelor Degree from Fairmont State College and eventually earned my Masters Degree from George Mason University.
I feel very fortunate to say that I have worked At Rockhill Elementary School since day one!! I guess you could say I am an original cast member. I have been blessed to have worked with hundreds of children and families and have formed many lasting friendships with them. I love when students come back to visit and let me know what is going on in their lives!!
I try to incorporate music when possible into my teaching. I love music!! I play piano, flute and love to sing! There is something magical about the rhythm and rhyme of the right music that helps children understand and connect to their learning. Connecting to students and helping them reach their full potential is my most important goal!
