My name is Mida Shelton, I am a first grade teacher at Zeb-Vance Elementary School. This is my second year at Zeb Vance and I love working with the students. Before I began my teaching career in public school, I worked in child care settings with various ages for over thirty years. I love and enjoy working with young children, giving them their first experience with education. I feel that if they get a good experience when they first start school, it will help them build a posibive attitude towards learning through out their educational experience. I always say that students are beautiful unique individuals, no two are the same and each one has thier own unique personality.
