Mrs. Shay White



       Welcome to Geometry! It is my goal, that by the end of the year, each

        student will feel confident in his or her mathematical skills and abilities. My

        job is to help students succeed to the best of their ability and the students’

        job will be to come to class prepared and ready to learn. I am excited for

        this year and grateful to be your teacher for Geometry.


      A little bit about me

        I grew up in New Braunfels, Texas (Yes, I am still a Texan Native).  In 1988,

        I graduated from Canyon High School. I attended Gallaudet University and   

        earned a Bachelor of Science in Secondary Education and Mathematics. I

        had an internship as a student teacher at Texas School for the Deaf.         

        Although I enjoyed the teaching, I decided to pursue a Master degree in

        Deaf Education at McDaniel College. Again, I did my student teaching

        at Colorado School for the Deaf and Blind. I ended up there and I worked

        several years (actually, 19 years) in teaching math for middle school/high

        school and then moved back to Texas (What is it with me and the heat?)

        where I became a math teacher at Texas School for the Deaf. This is my

        ninth-year teaching at TSD. I have been a teacher for 27 years, most of   

        which have been in the math classroom. 


        In my free time, I enjoy paddle boarding, toobing down the river, hanging out

        at the lake, taking vacations to beach, hiking, and spending time with my awesome

        family.  My husband and I have been married for 24 years and have been

        blessed with three amazing sons, the oldest one - going into senior in

        college, the middle one - going into sophomore in college, and the youngest 

        one - going into 11th grade.  I absolutely love watching them do what they
