Ms. Debbie Shuster
Thank you for visiting my webpage. I am thrilled to have the opportunity to get to know and work with your students. I know each one will grow independently as well as work together as a team.
Just a little about myself----I grew up in West Virginia and worked quite a bit on our family farm and orchards. I went to Shepherd University, a small teaching college in Shepherdstown, WV. It is one of the oldest towns in WV and is both peaceful and beautiful. I received my Masters Degree in Learning Disabilities/Learning Strategist at West Virginia University. And yes, I am a HUGE FOOTBALL fan of the Mountaineers!! My daughter, Ashley, graduated from WVU in Animal Nutrition/Veterinarian Medicine. I have two very spoiled dogs, Shena, a mixed terrier, and Rosie, a very rotten minature collie. We also have a spoiled bunny named Libby and a turtle named Scooter.
I have been teaching in Niles since 1991. I started at Eastside in the Lili Program and then to Oak Manor. I taught there for 14 years before going to Ballard in 2006. I have thoroughly enjoyed working with Niles kids and have seen so many of them succeed. I welcome you to come in and see what your child is doing. Maybe you can even lend a helping hand. If you have any questions or if I can be of any help in regards to your child's education, please feel free to call or email.
