Shay is starting her second year of teaching in Joliet. She grew up in a ranching community in Western Montana where she was involved with sports, choir and band, 4-H, and all the school could provide. She married her high school sweetheart in 2001 and earned her degree in Elementary Education from BYU-Idaho in 2004. Since that time, Shay has been actively involved with ranch work at home and raising three busy cowboys. When she is not wrangling 2nd graders, she loves to be outdoors, work in the garden, make jam, ride horses, and cook for the ranch crew. Shay has a passion for learning new things and helping others find success along the way.
