I am married and have three children, two boys and a little girl. My passion is for every student who comes through my door to find a love for learning. I try to accomplish this task with high expectations and goals combined with loving every one of my students without hesitation. I value the relationship building process with these kids. Through the love I have for kids, my students have returned that in naming our learning environment. With my last name being "Shaver" and the fact I generally don't shave... they have dubbed my classroom The Shave Cave. I hope that your child comes to love their time in The Shave Cave! In the sidebar, you can find information about how my classroom is structured and what to expect your child to learn this year in Math.

Homeroom Schedule:
Students are required to be at school from 7:50-3:30. Breakfast will be served in the cafeteria this year starting at 7:35, and our doors open at 7:00. Here is our schedule from start to finish each day. If possible, try to make doctor/dental appointments around lunch time to avoid students from missing core subject area classes (Math, Science, & Reading are all STAAR tested areas in 5th grade).
