Mrs. Shelby Walters
Hi! My name is Shelby Walters and I am the 2nd and 3rd grade art teacher at Broadway! Although this is my 4rd year at Broadway, this is my 7th year teaching in Tipp City, as I previously taught art at Nevin Coppock!
As a child, I was introduced to art at a very young age by my grandmother, whom was a painter. I also loved playing “school,” and helping my younger brother with his homework, so when it came time to choose my major, I knew exactly the profession I wanted to pursue. In 2008, I received a Bachelor’s Degree in Art Education with a concentration in painting from Wright State University, in 2010, I earned my Master’s Degree from Grand Canyon University in Secondary Education, and this past May, I completed my second Master's Degree in Educational Leadership from Miami University.
I first began teaching in 2009 at a small art museum in Springfield where I taught children from ages 2 to 12. From there, I moved to Dayton Public Schools, teaching Kindergarten to 6th grade. Although I love teaching children of all ages, I am very happy to be focusing on the primary grades, as they are new to education and are so eager to learn and explore!
Although I was born and raised in Springfield (Kenton Ridge Alumni), I currently live in Englewood with my husband Bret, our two daughters, Jonnah age 13 and Adalyn (Addy) age 10, and our 3 dogs, Lucy, Isabell, and Riley. Addy is attending L.T. Ball this year as a fifth grader!
Throughout the school year, please be sure to periodically check out our Broadway Art Studio facebook page! (The link is at the bottom of this message) Here, you will find various announcements from the art room, each art lesson, and how you can help continue our classroom discussions at home.
Looking forward to another great year!!
