Mr. Shelberg

  • About the Assistant Principal

    My name is Scott Shelberg and I am beginning my 36th year in Kyrene. After graduating from ASU I started my career as a special education resource teacher at Niños. After seven years I took a position at the district office as a “jack of all trades” in the all encompassing department of Curriculum/ Instruction/ Assessment/ Staff Development and Instructional Technology. Two years later I took the opportunity to become a school-based leader working closely with students as the Assistant Principal at las Lomas. My graduate work in Education Leadership was completed through NAU (Go Lumberjacks!).  My other experiences have involved supporting principals at Niños, Norte, Waggoner, and Colina, and Estrella; as well as coordinating Title 1 programs across the district. Kyrene has been a wonderful community to work in and raise my family. My wife of 34 years is Marcia.  She worked as a kindergarten and first grade teacher in Kyrene for 15 years before taking a job at a small Christian school in Chandler.  My wife and I are both Arizona natives. We actually attended the same elementary, high school and college.  We have two adult boys Taylor and Wesley.  They make us both very proud. Taylor is 29 and married.  He is an event planner at Cal Baptist University in Riverside, CA.  Wes is 25 and teh general manager of a local eatery.  In my free time I like camping, fishing and woodworking. Sierra is such a special place where it has been a privilege serving for the past five years.  I have made so many amazing memories with the dedicated staff, students and parents to make Sierra an A+ and Blue Ribbon school of distinction.
