Shelly Alligood

3rd Grade

Shelly is a passionate teacher with 9 years of experience.  After graduating from Florida State University with a Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education, she first taught a combined 2nd/3rd grade class at a charter school for arts, science, and technology.  She then taught reading and math remediation which gave her experience with all elementary grade levels, Kindergarten through 6th grade. 

While living in Colorado, she taught 2nd grade at a classical Christian school, and there she fell in love with the classical model.  She remained a teacher until the week before her first child was born.  Then she was blessed to stay home with her two sons during their baby, toddler, and preschool years.  Now that they are both school-aged, she is excited to be back in the classroom. 

Shelly enjoys spending time with her husband, Jason, and their sons, Gavin and Bennett, who are students at Geneva.  She has a passion for Bible study and loves expository teaching.  She enjoys art, exercise, and the beach.  The Alligood family worship at Legacy Christian Church where Shelly serves in the area of making and delivering meals to families.
