Mrs. Shaina Soderstrom

My name is Shaina Soderstrom and I am ecstatic to spend my third year at MCCS teaching these amazing scholars! I have a BS in Elementary Education from Towson University and am working towards my Master’s in Curriculum and Instruction with a STEM focus. I have 15 years of experience teaching 1st - 3rd grade. Before coming to MCCS, I spent 6 years teaching 1st grade for Fairfax County Public Schools, one of which was a 1st and 2nd grade combination class. I also spent 8 years teaching 1st and 3rd grade in Maryland for Somerset County Public Schools. I was involved in teacher cooperative grants at Salisbury University for 6 years where teachers from around the region were immersed in STEAM instruction. I am passionate about creating engaging and meaningful activities that are centered on the interests of my scholars. I work hard to instill a love of learning and encourage a growth mindset. I have recently moved to Kearneysville, WV with my husband and two boys, 9 and 4. I am surrounded by fields, farms, and mountains and couldn’t be happier! I like to spend my spare time outdoors gardening, camping, and hiking. I also love to craft, dance, and make creations with my 3D printer. I am looking forward to a great year with all of the wonderful people at MCCS!
