Lower Elementary Assistant Teacher

Ms. Shay was born in Charleston and raised in Mount Pleasant.   She graduated from Wofford College with a B.A. in English and received her Master's Degree in Teaching for Elementary Education from the College of Charleston.   She is a state certified teacher with experience teaching elementary and preschool  since 1997.  She is also a mother to Lower Elementary student Baylor Zepp. Shay fell in love with ECMCS when she saw the love and light of learning restored in her own child's eyes through the Montessori method.   Now, she is so thankful to be a part of this school and share that light with other families.  Shay is currently in training for Montessori certification for Lower Elementary.
