We are collecting box tops. Please cut and save these for our school. Place in a baggie and send in with your child. We will have two collection periods. So clip and save those box tops so our school can earn free money.

About Mrs. Warbritton

I am very excited to begin my 16th year teaching. This will be my 14th year teaching 4th grade with experience in 2nd and 3rd grades as well. I have been here at Shayne since it opened and absolutely love to work here. I received my bachelors, masters, and plus 30 from Middle Tennessee State University. I love learning and think that it is crucial for myself to never cease to learn new techniques, strategies, or continue to be educated on the best possible ways to reach all learners.

I am married to Jeff, who is a firefighter with the Nashville Fire Department and we have two precious daughters, Emma Kate (9) , Rylee Marie (7), and an adorable son, Carter Allen (5). I love spending time with my family and friends.

I am so excited that I will be working with you and your child this year! I will work hard this year to meet each child’s needs, no matter their ability. I will do my best to help your child to develop socially, emotionally, and academically. I firmly believe each child can reach his or her potential if he or she is willing to do their BEST! As a teacher, wife, and mother, I strive hard to put 110% in all that I do. I am looking forward to a very exciting year here at Shayne!

About Ms. Head

I want to start off by saying that I am thrilled to have your child in my classroom this year! This will be my fifth year teaching at Shayne Elementary and my third year teaching in fourth grade. We are all going to be learning from each other throughout the year. I graduated from Metro Nashville Schools and loved every school that I attended. I hope your child will be able to say the same.

My name is Ashlee Head, and I am 27 years old. I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education from Middle Tennessee State University. I coach a competitive cheerleading squad at Premier Athletics in Franklin, TN. This will be my 11th season coaching at this gym. Some of my other hobbies include reading, shopping and spending time with my wonderful friends.
