Mrs. Shepherd

Welcome to Title 1 / RtI Math!



Mrs. Melissa Shepherd




I am beyond excited to start my second year teaching at FGS! It is going to be an amazing year!

Thank you so much, in advance, for playing such a huge role in your child's education.

I could not do what I do without you!




I strongly believe that open communication is a necessary factor in your child's education. Working together as a team is the best way to provide your child with the best foundation for academic success. Please feel free to contact me whenever you need to.

Behavior Management:


I will be using a "2 Points A Day" method for behavior management in my class. I strongly believe in focusing in on positive behavior and rewarding kids for their positive behavior choices.

  • Each student has the opportunity to earn two points each time they come to my room
  • 1 point can be earned for being a good listener and paying attention
  • 1 point can be earned for working hard and doing their best the whole class period
  • Each point will earn 1 sticker on their individual behavior chart
  • When 20 stickers are earned they may choose one item out of the prize box
  • When an entire chart is filled up that student will receive a good news note! :)
