Ms. Gibbs

My name is Shavawn Gibbs.  I was raised in Georgetown and attended K-12th in GISD.  I come from a long line of teachers who value education and its importance. I love learning and teaching! I am dyslexic and school was hard for me. However, I did not give up because it is not in my nature to do so. I succeeded in high school and in college. I graduated Texas State with honors in December 2015.  I also worked at a daycare with toddlers and two year-olds. I student taught at Annie Purl Elementary with Ellen Jorgensen in fall of 2015. I worked in Title with Kindergarten through Second grade Math and Reading.  I was a para professional in Pre-Kindergarten in Katie Rueter’s class in fall of 2016. In the spring of 2017 I became a teacher in Pre-Kindergarten at Annie Purl. This is my second and half year as a teacher at Purl and in Pre-Kindergarten. I married my high school sweetheart Doug. My husband and I had our frist baby at the end of October. :) I cannot wait to get started!


My philosophy on early childhood education: 

I believe play, exploration, and having a variety of experiences is important for children. Early childhood education helps shape who children will become. I will be a guide to help them along their journey during this important stage of their lives. I love the idea of children experiencing new things. Children want to learn and as a teacher one must give them the tools to explore the world around them.
