Mrs. Shirley Pearson

Welcome Back New Bern High School! I am Shirley Pearson, I teach math and science within the OCS program. This is my third year of teaching at New Bern High School. Prior to Working at New Bern High School, I was an Autistic counselor and program coordinator for Adults and children with Autism. I graduated from Grand Canyon University in the fall of 2019 with my master’s in special education and love learning new things. I challenge myself each day to learn something new. Along with teaching I love coaching softball, mountain biking, hiking and the great outdoors. When I am not teaching you can find me at the ball field, or with my husband, Nathan, hiking different trails in North Carolina, mountain biking, or working in our garden.

I look forward to seeing you all back at school this year.
