Welcome to all our new 7th graders. I am Mrs. Shillington, but most of my students just call me "Shill" and that is fine with me. I teach 7th grade Life Science which is a basic foundation for the Biology curriculum you will be getting in your 10th grade year. We will be starting with the cell and will follow life completely through mammals.I have been teaching since 1984- YIKES, has it been that long? I completed my undergraduate degree at Idaho State University, got a special education endorsement at Boise State and earned my Masters Degree from University of Idaho. I am also Nationally Board Certified in Special Education. I have been at Canfield since 1995.My husband Scott and I have two children, a daughter,who is an Xray Technician in Spokane and a son, who is a Physical Therapist in Coeur d'Alene. I am an Idaho native born and raised on a farm in southern Idaho. I am passionate about science and can't wait to share that passion with you.
