2nd & 3rd Grade Assistant Teacher
Shalene comes to us from an eclectic background in music, teaching, performance, and fitness instruction. She graduated from Appalachian State University with a degree in vocal performance and since that time has maintained a busy performance schedule while also teaching, helping to promote Waldorf education in Asheville, developing a swim program for children with special needs and caring for her two daughters ages 12 and 10.
Shalene’s brings both music and song into everything she does, from greeting families in the morning to working with the 2nd and 3rd graders in Robin’s 2nd-3rd grade class. She most enjoys helping Robin lead students to discovery in learning through math centers, writing centers and reading. She can often be found playing music softly for the children during centering time or quiet writing time.
