Shelby Wagner is originally from Rochester, MN, but transplanted to Winona when she took on the position of Youth Development Director for the local YMCA. Eventually, she decided to return to teaching and after all the fantastic things she had witnessed at Bluffview, landed a position with the wonderful Erdkinder team. During her time as the Social World teacher, she enjoyed getting to meet all the families and staff involved with the school. However, due to lingering Covid illness issues and having a newborn son at home, she decided to teach online for a while. But now she is back and even more excited than ever, given that she is teaching with the latest and greatest Erdkinder team and teaching in the subject area where her career began, middle school language arts! Not to mention, last time she was working at Bluffview her daughter was at school with her and now this time, she has her son by her side. And on top of all this, she is now teaching siblings and family members of her former students and gets to catch up with them. Shelby is elated to be back and can’t wait to persuade all the Erds into creating and enjoying POETRY!
Fun Fact: Her family has plenty of rescue animals at home, she collects and loves all rocks, and she enjoys drawing and painting as often as she can!
