Degrees and Certifications:
My name is Joel Shackelford. I teach the STEM and Advanced STEM classes here at Gardner Middle School. I graduated from Colorado State University in 1997 with a double major in Biology and Zoology. I then received my master in Multi and Crosscultural Education from National University where I also received my teaching credentials in Biology, General Science, and Industrial Technology. I have been teaching for over 20 years and am extremely excited at the direction education is taking in terms of Science and Engineering! I am looking forward to a fantastic year!
