Shanda Layman

Hello! I am excited to come back to teaching after a 7-year break to stay home with my children. This will be my 11th year in education.  I graduated from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte with a BA in Psychology. I then returned to school to receive my teaching degree in Special Education and Elementary Education.  I am so excited to join the 6th-grade team at Highland Middle School.   I am married to Jason and I have two children, Lillian and Jackson who attend Highland Elementary. In my spare time, I enjoy reading, crafting and decorating. I go to the beach as often as I can. I am looking forward to sharing my love of Reading with our 6th graders.
