Mrs. Kathleen Shaffer
Welcome to my web page! I have had the pleasure working for the Salamanca City School district for over 25 years and am looking forward to many more. My current position as a specialist is to provide reading and math intervention services for students in 4th, 5th and 6th grades during WIN (What I Need) time. We are busy every day learning and growing being the best we can be.
A little bit about myself and my family. I was born in Allegany, New York and now currently reside in Portville, New York. I am married to my wonderful husband Bill and we have two beautiful children LeighAnn (21) and Billy (19). LeighAnn is a senior in college attending SUNY Fredonia to become an educator. Billy is living his dream, playing junior hockey for the Niagara Falls Junior Canucks in the GOJHL in Canada. We have two lovable labs named Bella and Bubba.
I attended St. Bonaventure University and received a Bachelors in Elementary Education and continued on for a Masters in Reading as well as additional administrative courses from Hilbert College in Buffalo. I also taught sixth grade at Wellington Landings Middle School in West Palm Beach, Florida for three years prior to starting my career here in Salamanca.
In my free time I love golfing, gardening, fishing, hunting and spending time with my family. I love going to hockey games, fishing on the French River in Canada and spending time in my garden in the summer!
