My name is Brandy Shelton and I am a Fourth Grade Teacher at West Clayton Elementary School. I have a bachelor's degree in Early Childhood Education and am certified to teach grades P-5.  This is my third year teaching 4th grade.   I have previously taught 2nd grade and Pre-K, but 4th grade is my favorite!
In my free time I love to travel with my children.
I look forward to building relationships with all of my students and their families during the 2019-2020 school year!
