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 Sierra; 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. In my free time I like camping, fishing and woodworking. I have enjoyed getting to know everyone at Estrella. I am looking forward to this year, and helping Mr. Johnson realize his vision for Estrella.
