Ms. Shappell


My name is Ms. Shappell.  I  am very excited to be teaching SKIP again this year. 
Social Kinesthetic Imaginative Play embraces all that I hold close to my heart 
for what children need. 
To provide materials and experiences for children to explore and practice what they are learning in their classrooms 
in an active and engaging environment.
This will begin my 26th year of teaching in the Fife SchoolDistrict and I feel very proud to be a teacher at

Discovery Primary School.


My passion is teaching young children. 

I love helping them learn new things,

becoming more confident in their abilities,

and create a love for learning and coming to school.


In my free time I enjoy reading, working in my yard,

hanging out with my son Drew and listening to music.


My educational background includes: Bachelor of Arts Degree in Elementary Education and Special Education which I received at Pacific Lutheran University and a Masters of Education Degree in Early Childhood Education which I received from Lesley College.   I enjoy learning new ways to engage students in learning and being the best they can be at school, home and in the community.
