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 twenty-fourth year teaching in DVUSD.  I spent twenty-one years at Park Meadows teaching in a 4th grade self-contained classroom, and the past four years teaching 5th grade math here at Highland Lakes.  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 thirty years to my amazing husband, Chris, and together we have been blessed with two daughters.  Our oldest, Alex, graduated from Sandra Day O'Conner High School in 2013, and has earned her Associates Degree in Science and Arts.  She then graduated from the GCC/ASU CEP nursing program with an additional Associates Degree in Nursing and her Bachelors of Science in Nursing.  Our youngest, Sam, graduated from Willow Canyon High School in 2021, and is currently a registered behavior technician attending GCC.  We also have two rambunctious puppies - a Westie named Maisey and a Golden Doodle named Peanut. 

    I just know it's going to be an amazing year!  I look forward to seeing you on the first day of school - August 1, 2024!  :)
