I have my bachelor's degree in elementary education from Murray State University. Murray's program is well known for it's outstanding education program. Murrays program is accredited by the Commonwealth of Kentucky along with being nationally accredited by the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education


Here within the next two years, I will begin my Masters degree at University of the Cumberlands.





To be honest, this is my first "full" year teaching. I was hired in December to teach 6th grade writing. So far, I love every single thing about this job and look forward to many more years of teaching children.




My name is Shellie White and welcome to my teacher page! I am so excited about this upcoming year, however, it is already moving by quickly! Let me tell you a little about myself. This is my first full year teaching and I love third grade. These kiddos are just full of love and laughter! :)

I was born and raised here in Hopkinsville and I was also a Sinking Fork Panther! As was my father, and my two sisters. My grandmother worked and retired as a cafeteria worker at the old Sinking Fork school. So Sinking Fork is much like home to me...I can't say enough of how much I enjoy being here.

Three years ago, my husband and I got married and we just had our first child in February. Her name is Alaina and she is just precious! I love being a mother, it is one of my favorite roles. She has been nothing but a true blessing to us. We also have three dogs, a cat, and a horse.


Speaking of horses, horseback riding is my all time favorite hobby. I have rode my whole life. I also like doing anything outdoors whether it is hiking, canoeing, hunting, fishing, snow skiing, etc. The one and only talent I have is drawing. I love to draw when I have the time.
