Certified K-8 Elementary Education
Masters of Science Special Education, Masters of Science Educational Leadership
Hi my name is Amy Sheppard and I am one of the Special Education Teachers here at Canfield. I teach 6th, 7th and 8th grade ELA Boost and a ELA Resource class. I work with the ELA general education teachers to reinforce concepts being taught in the general education classes as well as to help students continue to growth their knowledge and skills in ELA.
This is my 6th year teaching, with this being my first year teaching at Canfield. I previously worked at Lakeland High School teaching Special Education ELA, Math and a Study Support class. I currently hold a degree in Elementary Education, Masters in Special Education and a Masters in Educational Leadership. Not only do I enjoy teaching, but I love being a student myself.
I have 4 children, 3 girls and one boy. We have a very busy schedule with school events, sporting events, and just taking them to their friends houses. We have 1 dog and 1 cat. Outside of school I love to spend time with my family and friends. Summer is my favorite time of the year, not because I am not working, but because I love the sun and the warmth.
I have enjoyed my first year at Canfield so far. The staff and students are amazing and I cannot wait to continue to get to know everyone. When asked why I became a teacher I told my students it was the best way for me to help families in my community as well as my own family. I am here to help you and your family with your child's educational needs.
Thank you for sharing your student with the CMS family. Please contact me if you need anything.
