Shelli Gheen, School Librarian

Ms. Gheen grew up in Fauquier County, VA. She graduated from Liberty University with a general studies degree with concentrations in K-8 education, psychology and biology. After completing her degree, she began teaching 6th grade at Tye Rive Elementary School.  After one year, Ms. Gheen 'graduated' with her students to Nelson Middle School, teaching 7th grade for 9 out of her 10 years there with one year in 6th grade.  She has taught Life Science, Civics, US History I, Math 6, and Pre-Algebra 7.  Last year, she learned of the opening in the NMS Library and jumped at the chance to make a move she had dreamed of since before finishing her teaching degree. She is currently working on her School Library Media Masters at Longwood University.  Ms. Gheen loves being a librarian because she enjoys reading and helping others find something they enjoy reading. In her free time, Ms. Gheen likes to spend time with her family, watch movies, and play with her polydactyl cats, Ernie and Hadley.
