WELCOME TO 2nd - 3rd RESOURCE ROOM
Hello, My name is Erin Gainey and I will be your child's resource teacher for the 2021-2022 school year. I am excited to get to know you and your child.
This is my fifth year working for Currituck County Schools, specifically, Shawboro Elementary. I started as a volunteer, became a sub, then an EC Teacher Assistant, and now an EC Resource Teacher. This is my first year as a teacher and I am thrilled to be back at Shawboro. I have two boys that also went to Shawboro Elementary, so Shawboro has been my home for many years. My oldest, Zachary, is 14 and is attending JP Knapp this year. My youngest, Caleb, is 12 and attends Moyock Middle School.
This year we are lucky to have Tiffini Davis-Shelley as an instructional assistant. This is her second year at Shawboro Elementary School. She has her bachelors degree in psychology at Chowan University. Tiffini grew up in Currituck County and played softball throughout middle and high school. After becoming a part of the Mustang family she has decided to further her education onto a masters degree at Phoenix University in the fall. Tiffini wants everyone to know that she looks forward to working with you and your kids.
I look forward to working with all the students and getting to them. If there is anything specific you would like for me to know please Dojo, email or call. I believe that working together towards your child's goal is the most important thing. When it is time for their Annual or Re-evaluation IEP meeting, I will DoJo or email you a letter which will give you several dates and times to choose from. Please reply to the message as soon as possible as our calendar fills up quickly. You will also receive a DRAFT of the IEP we will be discussing in the meeting 7-10 days prior to the meeting via email or via student (your choice). There will be a form attached for you to sign indicating you received the DRAFT and return it to school as soon as possible or if emailed please reply to the email that you received it. Meetings this year will still be conducted via Google Meet, Face to Face or via Phone conference so please ensure I have your correct phone number and email address.
Thank you again for entrusting Ms. Tiffini and myself to assist in your child's education this school year.
