    My Classroom Mission

    We will push ourselves to become creative and responsible life long learners who readily explore new ideas and challenge ourselves in everything we do.  We will respect our fellow classmates and offer them encouragement through our words and our actions.  We will prepare ourselves to grow into responsible leaders of tomorrow through our hard work, positive attitude, and determination.
     
    About Me

    Hello Students and Parents!  

    Welcome to my classroom webpage!  My name is Hilary Rene and I am a 5th grade teacher here at Shepherd Elementary School.  I began my teaching career as a pre-K teacher in 1999.  Since then, I have been fortunate enough to teach grades K, 1, middle school, and within the EC classroom (PreK-8).  Teaching is a true passion of mine and I strive each day to grow as an educator and meet all of the diverse needs of my students. There is nothing more rewarding to me than observing a child's growth and smile! My academic background includes being a graduate of St. Joseph's College with a degree in Child Studies.  I hold dual certification in general education and Special Education.  I also minored in art during college and still enjoy creating and admiring art while learning about the history behind it. I currently live in Mooresville with my beautiful family that includes my husband Kris, two children, and four furry friends.  I look forward to a successful year ahead and meeting you all soon!
