Mrs. Shelley Roberts
Hello Polenta families! I am honored to join the PUMA school community this year as the K-5 interventionist! I am coming from Riverwood elementary, where I was blessed to teach since 2000!
I was born and raised in Smithfield and still love a small town. I earned my undergraduate and Master's degree in early childhood education from East Carolina University...go Pirates! I have three wonderful children, a ninth grade daughter, a sixth grade son, and a first grader! I am married to my very best friend and biggest supporter, who works for Farm Bureau.
When we have time we enjoy going to Lake Gaston, being outside, and going to the movies! I believe in family time and supporting one another.
