My name is Shelbie Goulden, and I teach 5th grade science/social studies along with math! I married Joshua in October 2018, and am mom to four fur babies. Otis and Mabel are our two dogs, seen below, and Rhea and Titian are our two cats. Along with spending time with our animals I enjoy reading non-fiction books and re-reading Harry Potter for the countless time. I travel frequently, my goal being to hit six continets before 35. I have already explored North America, Southeast Asia and will be spending three weeks in Europe this summer. The Europe trip doubles as my honeymoon, since getting married in the middle of the school year isn't ideal travel time!
This is my fourth year of teaching, and my third year at Horizon. I am a big proponet of teaching through games, and movement. My students will be active in class as much as possible. I am a Mustang graduate, I attended Creek Elementary, Mustang North, and Mustang High School. I received my Bachelors Degree in Communication with dual minors in Sociology and History from the University of Oklahoma (Boomer!). I also had the honor and privilage to march with The Pride of Oklahoma. I then attained my Masters Degree in Special Education from the University of Central Oklahoma (Go Bronchos!). I love to learn, and hope to pass the passion on to your student thoughout the year.
I look forward to meeting you, and seeing your student grow over the school year.
