Shelly Moore Krajacic

South Milwaukee, WI | Years Taught: 23

Shelly teaches high school English language arts. Her well-planned path to become an attorney ended when she first her student-teaching classroom. She works to give that experience to her own students: “It is my obligation to see my students in ways they have never seen themselves. I need to see possibilities in them that they never knew existed and to help them believe in themselves enough to discover pathways to those possibilities.”
