Welcome to 8th Grade English Language Arts!
My name is Lisa Shaw, and this is my sixth year being on staff at Germantown Middle School (Go Mavericks!). I have been teaching English Language Arts for seventeen years, the last eleven in the Madison County School District. Raised in Charleston, Mississippi, I attended Strider Academy from 1st-12th grade. After graduation, I attended The University of Mississippi (Go Rebs!) where I studied Business. Before I began my teaching career, I worked in the legal field and then began a family. I received my Master's of Arts in Teaching from Belhaven University in 2007 and began what had always been my dream career -- to teach! I am passionate about reading (go figure), and I enjoy baking, working out, and spending time with family and friends! I have two children; a daughter, Mary Clark, 29, who is an attorney in Madison County; and a son, Brian, 25, who is a Certified Public Accountant in Memphis, TN. I am married to Colonel (Ret.) Fred Shaw, III, and we reside in Madison County. I look forward to an exciting 2023-2024 school year!
