Curriculum Coordinator/Assistant Principal
My name is Shelley Gough. I graduated from Trevecca Nazarene University in 2007 with a Masters in Educational Leadership, North Carolina University in 2006 with a Masters in Theology, the University of Memphis in 1995 with a Bachelor of Science in Education, and Shelby State Community College with an Associate of Science degree.
My goal is to graciously encourage every student, correct them lovingly, and instruct them patiently. I hope that each student will leave our school not only academically more advanced, but with a higher self-esteem and level of confidence as well. Learning, in my opinion, is not just information passed on; it is one life invested in another. My objective is for each student to excel and exceed their fullest potential.
When not at school, I love traveling, four wheeling, and fishing.
Testing Coordinator/Assistant Principal
My name is Tonia Bond-Beard. I received a Master’s Degree in Educational Leadership from Trevecca Nazarene University in 2006 and a Bachelor of Science Degree from Middle Tennessee State University in 1998. Prior to obtaining an administrative position, I taught 6th grade Reading/Language Arts and have taught 6th grade Social Studies and 7th grade Reading/Language Arts. My greatest joy comes from spending time with my husband and our two children.
I am a firm believer that, “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.”-Nelson Mandela
