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 second 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 five children. My current travel goal is to visit all 50 states; I am one state shy of reaching my goal. 
I look forward to building relationships with all of my students and their families during the 2018-2019 school year!
