• Welcome to Miss Shepherd 3rd Grade

    I am Miss Shepherd. I have been teaching for three years. I'm a graduate of Jackson State University and currently working on a master's degree in early childhood education. I am thrilled to be teaching third grade English at Gary Road Intermediate and to be part of such a warm and dynamic community.  GRI is a wonderful place to teach and learn, and I feel lucky to be in this profession doing what I love.  I strive to create a caring, safe, and engaging learning environment, which encourages students to believe in themselves and to do their personal best.
