Welcome to 5th Grade at Comstock Northeast Middle School. My name is Shirley Gilland and I cannot wait to meet the next generation of kids to enter my classroom. I will be teaching social studies and language arts which consists of reading, writing, spelling, and grammar.
This will be an exciting transition for your child to the world of middle school. This will be my 24th year of teaching. Each year brings in a new set of minds to prepare for the challenges that students will need to be successful in their futures. My own two children help to keep me grounded and focused on what is relevant and important to kids. Spending time with my husband and children is where you will find me when I am not teaching. Family time is extremely valuable as I am sure any parent can understand.
Teaching is such an enjoyable experience for me. My goal each day is to transform my love of teaching into your child's love of learning !
