Mrs. Barbara Shy

Hello Warcub Family!  My name is Barbara Shy and I am an Exceptional Children Teacher.  The 2020-2021 school year marks my 18th year of teaching.  I have taught in a variety of capacities in both elementary and middle schools.  I am currently working in a separate setting class teaching the extended content standards.  This will be my 12th year in this position at HJ MacDonald Middle School.

I graduated from Liberty University with my Masters in Special Education in 2015 and Shaw University with my BS in Special Education in 1997 (Go Bears)!

When I am not teaching, I enjoy spending time with my family, reading novels, and baking.  

I am extremely excited to learn and grow with my students.  It is a privilege to be a special education teacher.  Working with such creative, unique individuals and being able to witness them grow brings me great joy!
