Hi, my name is Shirley Pedersen and I love being a Moorefield Station Shark! I received my B.S. in Interdisciplinary Studies at Radford University in 1993. I went on to receive my endorsements in Special Education through the University of Virginia. I began my career teaching in Pulaski VA, Newport News VA, and Fredrick County VA. For the last 16 years I have taught in Loudoun County as a kindergarten and first grade teacher. When I am not teaching, you can find me hanging out with my husband, Andrew. I also enjoy crafting, reading, learning about new technology to use in the classroom and beach time with my nieces and nephews.
