Mrs. Shelley DeHenre
Welcome to 7th Grade ELAR and PreAP GT ELAR!
I have been teaching middle school English Language Arts and Reading for the past 19 years, and I'm so excited to take on year number 20 - my 6th in Prosper ISD! I am originally from Mississippi, where I graduated from the University of Mississippi and first began my teaching career. I then moved to Delaware where my husband was stationed as an officer in the Air Force. While there I earned my Master's in Applied Technology in Education from Wilmington University and taught middle school for 10 years. My husband and I feel so fortunate that we were given the opportunity to relocate to Texas 7 years ago and so very happy to call Texas home! We have a son, Isaac, who is very proud to be 10 years old and in 5th grade at Windsong Ranch Elementary. He is an "expert" in all things relating to Video Games and Pokemon. We also have a 5 year old, Bennett, who loves showing how well he can tackle anything in his way and is excited to attend Kindergarten also at Windsong! Of course we can't forget about our four-legged family member named Buster Brown who was once our only "child" and who graciously embraced Isaac and Bennett as brothers. I love raising my boys in such a positive, family-friendly community, and I hope to give my students the same feeling as they enter my classroom. I'm looking forward to a fabulous year of helping my students grow to be the best they can be.
