Mrs. Elizabeth Shepard
I am a 27 year veteran mathematics teacher, 3 years in Middle School in Western NY, 3 years at a Christian school teaching 7-12, and the remaining years in various high schools in North Carolina, including here at Corinth Holders High School since its inception in 2010. I have taught almost all available high school math courses, from the old Algebra I, II and Geometry to the new Math 3, and upper level math courses of Advanced Functions and Modeling, Honors Pre-Calculus, and AP Calculus AB/BC. I am a proponent of rigor and relevance, encouraging students to connect old knowledge to new concepts. I also have calculator and non-calculator lessons to reinforce numeracy and estimations to establish confidence in mental math.
I have worked as the Math Department Chair at both Smithfield-Selma High and Corinth Holders. In 2014-15 I was honored to be awarded as a semi-finalist for Flame for Learning, Johnston Countiy's Teacher of the Year award.
It is my pleasure to guide students in the language and practice of mathematics.
