My name is Michelle Shelton, and this is my first year at Oxford High School. I am so very excited to be an Oxford Yellow Jacket! I have been teaching for over sixteen years. I am originally from Rainbow City/Southside in Etowah County. My family and I have FIVE pets: three dogs and two cats. I am to blame for acquiring most of them. I spend most of my time at home with my family but love a chance to visit someplace new. I have a bad habit of using ellipses too often and comparing just about any situation to a Friends episode. I am horrible with plants and cannot cook very well, but I am really good at stealing other people's ideas from Pinterest and making sure pictures are hanging straight.

I am married to Kyle Shelton, our fixer, builder, chef, and barista. I have three amazing daughters: Taylor, Sydney, and Sophie. Taylor is the organizer and planner, Sydney is the leader and comedian, and Sophie is the energetic ray of sunshine. I am just blessed to get to do life with these people. 

I'm looking forward to a great year of writing, reading, and discussing with this year's amazing group of students! Go, Big O!
