All About Me

Hi! My name is Ms.Wiedower! This will be my 1st year at Shepton. For the last three years, I have had the pleasure of teaching PE and coaching volleyball and track at Renner Middle School. This year I am excited to take on a new role as the iLEAP Learning Lab Facilitator. I am also the Plano West JV volleyball and track coach.

I received a Bachelor's in Physical Education and Health from Williams Baptist University and I played four years of collegiate volleyball. I received the Champion of Character award, the NAIA Female athlete of the year, and broke the assist record while playing for Williams. 

I have an amazing husband, Daniel Castro, and we welcomed our first baby, Luna Gene Castro, on March 29, 2022. Also, we have a cocker spaniel named Rupert! In my free time I like to read, listen to music, garden, and participate in outdoor activities. 


  • Course Information

    So what exactly IS iLEAP? iLEAP stands for Individualized Learning Environment for Academic Progress. This program provides a campus-based opportunity for students to recover credits and/or accelerate their graduation plan. Students can benefit from the program while staying on campus and participating in their regularly scheduled courses. As the Learning Lab Facilitator, I will be working with your student to not only make sure they get back on track but also stay on track! I will be monitoring their progress on their credit recovery coursework, other classes and providing guidance to best support your student. We will also periodically be working on lessons aimed to helping each student build his/her own efficacy for success. These lessons are designed to help the student engage in self-reflection as he/she systematically builds the skills necessary to be successful in school and in life.  In that process, the student will establish and take ownership of his/her own personal and academic goals. Overall, I am very passionate about creating lifelong learners, and can't wait to share that love with this year's upcoming students!
