Hello My Name Is...
My name is Shirley Deskins and I am a first grade teacher here at
McDowell Elementary! This is my 3rd year of teaching. I taught one year
at the June Buchanan School, and 2 here at McDowell. I obtained my
Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education from Alice Lloyd College, and
my Master's degree in mathematics from Walden University.
Teaching is my passion, I absolutely love it. I enjoy watching my
students' little minds grow each day as they learn something new. I take
pride in knowing that I help children to form a foundation and love for
learning each day in the classroom.
