Hi! My name is Mrs. Shaw and I’ll be your 8th grade science teacher at Goshen Middle School. I have a wonderful family including my loving husband Dakota and new daughter Sidney. I also have a collection of animals. I have 4 dogs, 5 cats, 4 goats, some ducks and chickens, and 2 ponds (koi and one for swimming). I have a passion for words, so be expecting to write, read, and speak as scientists!! I graduated from The University of Cincinnati in 2014, I had a 7 year plan. Uncovering a lot about myself, my passion, and what it takes to be a successful learner I left college and looked for a job. I have spent the past 2 years teaching and working for the Teachers Association. I love to cook, specifically vegetables. In 2014 I married a farmer and began the lifetime cycle of planting and harvesting, as a science teacher I enjoy watching the life cycle of plants so clearly showcased! One of my big passions is underwater. Scuba diving, snorkeling, swimming, just being next to a great body of water I can feel my mind relax. I look forward to working with your child in this upcoming year and seeing what kind of impact they will make in my classroom. You have a great group of teachers: Mrs. Rybak, Mrs. Fine, and Mrs. DeNu. Please subscribe to each of our websites to stay connected about what is happening in Elite 8!
