Hi! My name is Shayna Lachelle Willis! Originally from Springfield Massachusetts, moved to Durham NC in 1992. The youngest of four, one sister and two brothers. Attended Club Boulevard Elementary, Rogers Herr ( when it was all 6 grade :), Githens Middle School and Jordan High School. For College I attended the University of North Carolina at Charlotte and began as a Biology- PreMed major. Initially, my goal was to become a Pediatrician, however I did not want to tussle with the MCAT. While in college, I ended up transferring to North Carolina Central University and ended up finishing my Biology-PreMed degree at home in 2008. After graduating, I hit a point in life when I had to decide what I wanted to do in my career, I knew I loved children and always had people at church recruiting me to teach Sunday school and to lead various children's ministries in church. I loved leading those ministries in church, I ended up leading a youth dance ministry in church. After the journey in deciding, I decided to go into education. I began working at Trinity School of Durham/Chapel Hill as a Kindergarten Assistant in 2011, transferred to Transitional Kindergarten and assisted for a year. Then began as a lead teacher as a Transitional Kindergarten and later was blessed to find myself as a Kindergarten Teacher at Excelsior Classical Academy! I am currently licensed wrapping up my second degree in Elementary Education and will be the graduating class of 2020!!!!!!! A little more about me, favorite color purple, favorite food(s) Sushi, Tacos and Chocolate, and favorite holiday is Christmas!
