    Dave Stallo Mr. Stallo--Assistant Principal

    My name is David Stallo and I am honored to serve as the assistant principal of Shepard Elementary. This will be my 13th year in education.  I have taught Physical Education at the middle school level for 7 years along with coaching middle school football, basketball, and track. I have served as an assistant middle school principal for 2 years and this will be my 4rd year as assistant principal at Shepard Elementary.

    I received my bachelor’s degree from Northwest Missouri State University, Master’s degree from Central Methodist University, and Specialist degree from William Woods University. I have been married to my wife Cheryl for eleven years and we have three daughters Avery, Charley, and Elle. 

    I believe it is imperative that all students have the opportunity to be successful in life. It is our role as educators to create a positive learning environment where students can achieve success and establish skills to be life-long learners. Thank you for supporting Shepard and partnering with the school on your child’s education.
