Darlene Shepherd

Welcome to Second Grade 


Hi! Welcome to Second Grade!  My name is Darlene Shepherd.  I will be your child’s teacher for this year’s adventure!  I am excited to see what this class will be able to do!

I wanted to give you a little bit of information about me!  I am going into my 15th year of teaching!  I have taught every grade from Pre-K thru 5th; but I think Second grade has stolen my heart!  I am originally from the mountains of Tennessee; and lived for many years in Asheville, NC!  I am a mountain girl at heart; and love any opportunity to go hiking and horse riding!  I have 3 grown children; and 5 beautiful grandchildren!  My only granddaughter says she wants to be a teacher like her Mimi (she was born on my birthday!) 

I am very excited to get to know you and your child better this year!  I can’t wait to see how they will blow my mind with their learning.  

If you ever have a question or concern; please feel free to call the office; or you can email me: dashepherd@duplinschools.net.  I will also have ClassDojo; which is a wonderful way to communicate.


Thank you in advance for letting me teach your most precious gift!
