Mrs. Shinkle, Assistant Principal
My name is Carrie Shinkle, and I am the Assistant Principal at Atlas Elementary.
I grew up in Butte, MT and attended college at Western Montana College in Dillon (Go Dawgs!), earning a degree in elementary education. My first teaching job was in Salmon, ID where I taught 3rd and 5th grades. After four years in Salmon, my family and I relocated to Prineville, OR. During my time in Prineville, I taught 2nd and 3rd grades. Additionally, I served as a school counselor for three years, an academic coach for four years, and an elementary vice principal for two years. While in Oregon I also obtained a Master’s Degree in Curriculum and Instruction as well as an Administrative Credential.
I am the proud Mom of three boys. Jake and his wife, Sarah, live in Oregon where they are both teachers. Ryder is working towards certification as a paramedic. Grey is a freshman at Lake City High School.
I look forward to working with the students and families at Atlas Elementary.
