In her own words . . .

“Over the years, I have come to believe conceptually that being an educator is not that different from being a physician. We assess, diagnose and implement interventions for the purpose of developing and impacting one’s quality of life. Physicians work on physical and mental well-being. We work in the areas of cognition, social and emotional well-being. ”

In the words of others . . .

“Shelby is a problem solver, and she dedicates her time and talent to making Northbrook High School a great place to learn. Students and teachers alike are impacted by her knowledge and teaching. . . . She is a dynamic educator and one conversation with her can alter perceptions and motivate change.”
- Rebecca Dunlap, Northbrook High IEP Specialist
