Shelly Munger was named Liberty Park Middle School’s representative for Alabama Teacher of the Year.
Shelly Munger, seventh and eighth grade inclusion teacher and majorette sponsor, has been named Liberty Park Middle School’s representative for Alabama Teacher of the Year.
Munger has spent the past 14 years teaching in Lee County Schools, Auburn City Schools, Talapoosa County Schools and Vestavia Hills City Schools. She graduated from Auburn University, earning a bachelor of science degree in family and child development and a master of education degree in special education.
Munger said she loves working with kids who need unique ways to learn academic material. She also believes in treating her students the way she would like her own children to be treated.
Before she became a teacher, Munger was a foster care social worker at Lee County Department of Human Resources. She said she loves spending time with the children but didn’t get to see them much due to paperwork and other aspects of her job. She decided to become a teacher so she could spend all day working directly with children.
In her spare time, Munger enjoys spending time with her family, listening to music and reading.
