About Me

Welcome to my first attempt at a Homepage. My name is Michelle Shepard and I am a teacher at Wauchula Elementary School in Hardee County, Florida. I teach third grade. This Homepage is a project I am creating during a training session at the Miami Museum of Science.

About Our Community

Hardee County is a rural community near the center of the state of Florida. We are located approximately 70 miles southeast of Tampa. Agriculture and phosphate are our two major industries.

About Our School District

Hardee County has 1 high school, 1 junior high, and 4 elementary schools. We are unique in that we are one of the only two school districts in the state that divides elementary schools into campuses for Grades K-2 and Grades 3-5.

About Our School

Wauchula Elementary is a grade 3-5 school with an enrollment of approximately 700 students. We are actively involved in the Accelerated Reader program school-wide and would love to hear from other schools who use this program.

About My Classroom

An intergrated curriculum is my focus for the year. I plan on teaching the following novels this year : MR. POPPER'S PENGUINS, FRANKENSTEIN MOVED IN ON THE FOURTH FLOOR, NUMBER THE STARS, AND MRS. PIGGLE WIGGLE. I am very interested in speaking with other teachers who are interested in these novels.
