Welcome! Hi! My name is Shayna Ehlers and this is my third year teaching first grade at Cuba Elementary. Teaching has been my passion for many years, and my goal is to instill the desire to learn in all my students! I want to inspire my students to reach their full potential and imagine possibilities they might not otherwise imagine!
Background I received my Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education with endorsements in math and reading at Ashford University in Clinton, Iowa.
Experience Before coming to Cuba, I completed my student teaching experience in a first grade classroom at Northeast Elementary in Goose Lake, IA. I also had the opportunity to student teach in a fifth grade classroom at Whittier Elementary in Clinton, IA. After graduating I was lucky enough to find the exact job I wanted...teaching first grade!
Interests I enjoy playing and coaching softball. I currently give softball pitching lessons and help coach with park district teams during the summer. Keep an eye out for me at the ballpark! In my spare time I love reading and being outdoors. I also enjoy spending time with my family and friends!
