“Teaching is the act of sharing the knowledge we have been given by others with hope that someday, by some way, it will again be passed on.” 

Shelly Fisher’s passion for teaching is never-ending.  She presently has unlimited energy teaching 2nd graders, but also plays a huge role in her school building as a leader of the Positive Behavior Intervention System team and as a designee for her principal.  Shelly holds her teaching degree in Elementary Education with an endorsement in Mathematics and she also holds her master’s degree in Educational Administration.  Mrs. Fisher continually challenges herself and seeks ways to improve teacher effectiveness by meeting the needs of the ever-changing world of education.  Holding high accountability for the students in her K-5 building who range from ESL learners, Gifted Learners, children with Autism, children with learning disabilities, speech impaired children, and children with social and emotional issues.  She also provides leadership to colleagues, student teachers, teacher’s assistants, and to teachers who explore her classes through The Connecting Link (TCL).  She has been an instructor with The Connecting Link since 1991 and continues to provide classes that are exciting, motivating and useful content for teachers who are always trying to be the key factor in their students’ lives for them to be successful.  She has had experience with many different TCL classes and strives to keep them current and is excited to hear when her students take their knowledge gained from the classes and are able to apply and use them in their educational setting.  Giving time for teachers and educational staff to share, compare, contrast and dig deeper are the strong components of Shelly Fisher’s TCL classes.
