My name is Alicia Shirley. I have been teaching First Grade at Maywood Public Schools for 13 years. I believe that every child has the right to learn to their fullest extent. Each child is their own individual person, and no two children will be alike so I strive to reach all learning styles. I want all my students to get the best possible education to help them succeed in the adventures their life takes them on.
I am originally from North Platte, Nebraska. After graduation I moved to Kearney, Nebraska to attend college. I graduated from the University of Nebraska at Kearney with my BAE in Elementary Education with an endorsement in Early Childhood. Since then I have also received a K-6 Mild Moderate endorsement and have completed my Masters degree in K-8 Principalship.
My husband is Nate Shirley, and he is originally from Lexington, Nebraska. We were married on September 3, 2011. We now have bought a house and reside in Maywood, Nebraska. We enjoy camping in the summer with our friends and family. We also enjoy golfing when we get the time. I also enjoy reading, I always have a book in some format with me and am known to be reading two or more books at any given time.
My mission word for this year is INSPIRE. I am going to try and inspire those around me to be the best version of themselves while I myself and inspiring to do the same.
