Meet the Principal

Shacklette Elementary is the place where learning happens! This K–5 school, serving approximately 450 students, is supported by a caring community, involved parents, a dedicated board of education, and exceptional staff.
I want to emphasize that I genuinely care about students and their families, which motivates me to work hard. I feel passionate about education and committed to supporting the learning of all students. I am eager to work with the Shacklette Elementary staff, students, families, and community to provide a quality educational experience for everyone. We will work together to ensure a safe, positive environment and support all students in their academic and social growth.

Trying to determine and execute what is best for students is always at the forefront of our efforts. The partnership between families and our school is an important part of our success. Students benefit when parents/guardians are involved in their learning. We should have consistent communication between home and school and regular opportunities for families to learn about what is happening at school and to provide feedback to help us improve.

I look forward to working with you and developing a relationship that will assist in the growth of your child. We encourage any questions, comments, or concerns that arise throughout the school year. Please feel free to visit Shacklette Elementary and to contact your child's classroom teacher, our office, and me. We hope that each and every student has a rewarding, positive, and successful experience at Wade E. Shacklette Elementary School.
