Ms. Shelly Bedard, ESL Coach and Interventionist
Hello Stinson Stars and Families! I am thrilled to be starting my 28th year as an elementary educator (24 of those years at Stinson). I love being the ESL Coach and Interventionist at Stinson and helping children from other countries learn English. Before teaching ESL, I taught grades 2nd and 3rd at Stinson. I also taught in Dallas ISD and Waco ISD prior to coming to Plano ISD in 2000. I have a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Speech Communications from Texas A&M University and a Graduate Degree in Curriculum and Instruction from Texas A&M Commerce. I hold teaching certifications in Early Childhood - 6th Grade, Special Education, ESL, and PACE. When I'm not at school, I enjoy spending time with my two daughters, and my dogs named Angel and Rylie. Working at Stinson has been one of the most rewarding adventures of my life and I am honored to be teaching English to our Emergent Bilingual students at Stinson once again. I'm looking forward to another exciting year with our Stinson Stars!
