Hi, I am Shaun Smith. I teach 2nd grade. This is my fourth year at Shepard. I have been in education for 14 years, 11 as a classroom teacher. I have taught kindergarten, 2nd, 4th and 5th grades. I earned my bachelor's of science in Parks, Recreation, Tourism-Natural Resources Recreation Management from MU. Next, I earned my master's in education from Columbia College and more recently my education specialist in k-12 administration from MU. I have two boys, who both attend Shepard and my wife works at a middle school in Columbia. I am excited for another great year in 2nd grade at Shepard Boulevard Elementary School.
