Footsteps to Brilliance in 3rd Grade

Ms. V. Sellars’ students were introduced to Footsteps to Brilliance on September 14, 2017. These children were very engaged in their work. They were singing to themselves, or so they thought. They were wearing headphones and because they were so engaged, they forgot that everyone else could hear them! .....


Mitchell County Elementary School has a new mentoring program called STARS. Its advisors, Ms. S. McIvory and Mrs. I. Parker are excited to be working with some very special girls! STARS is an acronym for Sisters Taking Action to Realize Success.

Ashlee Shiver

Mitchell County Elementary School Teacher of the Year
                Ashlee Shiver has been a teacher in the Mitchell County School System for four years.  She received her Bachelor’s degree from Grand Canyon University in Arizona and graduated Summa Cum Laude. She has a passion for special education and celebrates every milestone, no matter how big or small, with her students.  She supports her students through the learning process because she knows this is only the beginning of their journey.
                Mrs. Shiver insists that her mission is to “…give my children the opportunity to learn outside of the classroom. I ensure that many opportunities of learning exist beyond the walls of our classroom by teaching my children to explore different routes and methods of learning.  Learning takes place well-beyond pencil, paper, and textbooks.”
                Mrs. Shiver’s message to all is that ALL children can achieve. Children achieve and learn at different levels and have different abilities.  The most important step to ensure that all children become achievers is to have supportive and driven educators working with them. Achievement does not just come in the form of high test scores.
                She chooses to take the position that her students can and will do things beyond what most people believe they can accomplish.  This idea can be applied to all students.  She believes that “sometimes we have to go beyond the obvious when we work with children.”
