Stacy Shirley began teaching PreK at Dayton's Bluff Elementary in 2013. She has a Bachelors of Art in Education from Augsburg College (2000) and a Masters of Art in Educational Technology from Concordia (2018).
Stacy's favorite season is summer during which she likes to go camping and hiking with her family. During the winter she prefers to hibernate and read.
Ms. Stacy lives in Elko New Market, south of the cities. She lives with her husband, son, and small dog in a house that backs up to a wooded hill. The wildlife (deer, birds, owls, turkeys, and more) in her backyard provide lots of entertainment.
Stacy loves to watch our youngest learners grow academically, socially, physically, and emotionally throughout their PreK year. Student's excitement when they finally accomplish something is one of her favorite parts of teaching. Everyday is a new day and a new adventure with our students at Dayton's Bluff.
Degrees and Certifications: BA - Elementary Education, PreK-6 (Augsburg), MA - Educational Technology (Concordia)
