Mrs. Shockley teachers 8th grade Science. Born in Macon, Georgia, many years ago, Mrs. Shockley is a native Georgian. Although, she spent many years away in school and following her navy husband, Mrs. Shockley returned to Marietta in 1985 where she and her husband raised their two sons.
It was during this time that Mrs. Shockley decided to become a teacher and went back to earn her middle school science/math degree. After completing this degree at KSU, she taught Eighth Grade Earth Science in Cobb County from 1993-1997. She spent three years at Smitha Middle School and one year at East Cobb Middle School.
In 1997, Mrs. Shockley moved to Canberra, Australia, where she first taught as a graduate assistant and finished her masters at University of Canberra. She spent her last two years there teaching grades 7-10 science and math in a private school.
After leaving Australia, she moved to Texas and taught science for four years. And, now she is thrilled to be back in Georgia teaching at Mabry.
When not teaching, Mrs. Shockley enjoys hiking, tennis, wildlife studies (and other geeky science stuff), antiquing, family/friend times, driving old cars, reading, and traveling. She especially likes to go to Australia to visit her granddaughter!
