Mrs. Shelly Coco
Hello! My name is Shelly Coco, and I'm so excited to have the opportunity to teach 5th grade math to your child this year! Each and every child in my classroom is extremely important to me and deserves the chance to pursue the attainment of his/her potential. This is my first year teaching at Highland Lakes, but my twenty-second year teaching in DVUSD. I have spent the last twenty-one years at Park Meadows teaching 4th grade. My primary expectations for each student are to do his/her personal best, to be respectful, responsible, and safe at all times. I believe all students can learn when they are provided an environment that is conducive to learning.
I have been married for twenty-six years to my amazing husband, Chris, and together we have been blessed with two daughters. Our oldest, Alex, grauated from Sandra Day O'Conner High School in 2013, and has earned her Associates Degree in Science and Arts. She will be graduating from the GCC/ASU CEP nursing program with an additional Associates Degree in Nursing this May and her Bachelors of Science in Nursing the following December. Our youngest, Sam, will be graduating from Willow Canyon High School this spring. We also have a nine year old beagle-mix named Bella.
It's going to be an amzing year - it's just going to look a little different. I look forward to learning our new normal with you this year. Stay healthy! :)
