Dear Students and Families,
My name is Shelbey Carlson and I live in Oak Harbor with my husband and our daughter. I am so excited to start my teaching career here at Hillcrest Elementary this year! I received my Bachelor’s degree from the University of Washington in Disability Studies with minors in Diversity and Education. I am currently attending Grand Canyon University online to earn my Master’s in Special Education.
My philosophy coming into my career as an educator stems from my unique undergraduate experience. Disability Studies focuses on the “social model” of disability, which focuses on society’s inaccessibility as the main factor in one’s disability. If you would like more information on the social model, feel free to email me.
