My name is Shellie Burton and I’m so excited to be joining the Saklan family this school year! I have a degree in Education from Concordia University Texas, where I taught public school in both 5th and 4th grades. For the last 3 years, I taught 4th grade in Huntington Beach, CA in a private school. Words cannot describe how thrilled I am to find Saklan, and be hired to teach my favorite grade!!!

I have three beautiful children, the last baby just moved out… so I am a new empty nester! They have all spread their wings and are pursuing the arts in one capacity or another! Recently, I have moved back to Northern California, where I grew up, to be closer to my ageing parents.

As a lifelong learner myself, I want children to love to come to school! My classroom will be a safe learning space for all students to take risks, make mistakes, and cheer each other on to achieve Personal Best!

I look forward to the great learning adventures we will have this year!
