Welcome to Ms. Hunt’s 1st Grade

Phone: (812) 462-4307

Hi! My name is Shelly Hunt!

I have been teaching 25 years! I absolutely love what I do! I have taught 1 year in Transition 1st grade, 1 year in 2nd grade and 23 years in 1st grade! Most of my teaching career was spent at West Vigo Elementary but I recently moved here to Rio Grande. I attended Rio Grande a “few” years ago! It is definitely nice to be back. I won a Golden Apple in 2005 while teaching 1st grade. I was truly grateful for receiving such an amazing award for just doing what I love to do. Teaching has been all I have ever wanted to do since I was a little girl. I am so thankful every day to be doing a job I love. My students are just that “my” students and it is an honor to be able to teach each of them all I can during the year I have them.

I have three beautiful, amazing and talented daughters! My favorite job has always been being their mom. Allison is 27 , Emilee is 24, and Adlee is 17 and a Junior at Terre Haute North. They are my best accomplishments! We enjoy spending time together. Whether its traveling to the beach, Holiday World or staying right here in town, we like spending as much time as we can together.

Some of my favorite things are: Coffee, chocolate, the Colts, racing, using social media with other teachers to get lots of new ideas, and reading whenever I can. I am looking forward to a GREAT year!
