Hello my fabulous Artsy Owls! My name is Mrs. Shelton and I am super excited to be your Art teacher this year! A little about myself: I grew up in Ohio and graduated from Bowling Green State University with my Bachelor of Science Degree. I received my K-12 Art license from Mount Union College. I completed my Special Education certification from UT Martin. I have taught elementary, middle and high school Art classes and I was a Comprehensive Development (Life Skills) teacher for 6 years. Helping students (with or without special needs) grow their creative and problem-solving skills is my passion! I am married to an Art teacher and we have 2 creative kiddos. In my free time, I love to spend time with my family, sewing, knitting and doing yoga.

Oakland uses a positive behavior matrix that promotes student awareness in expected behaviors.  This matrix can be seen in every room, throughout the building, is described in our school handbook located in the front of each student's provided OWL planner, and builds off our character trait acronym (WISDOM) banners handing from our foyer ceiling.  Each desired trait is broken down to identify school related desired behaviors to create student understanding and awareness of expectations.  These indicators are also linked to Class Dojo, which is used not only by teachers but throughout the entire building by special area teachers, special service providers, support staff, and administrators to provide consistency for our students and with parent communication.  The six overarching categories/character traits that student friendly indicators are broken down for on the visual matrix that students are taught about and expected to strive for are:

  • Work Ethic
  • Integrity
  • Self-discipline
  • Determination
  • Optimism
  • Motivation

Follow the link below to view the full "Dojo and Matrix Cheat Sheet".  This is designed to show the connection between the values on the matrix and the skills that are on Class Dojo.
