Ms. Nancy Shafer

Hi!  Welcome to Glendale-Kenly Elementary Health and Physical Education!  This is my 4th year at Glendale-Kenly Elementary School and my 21st year teaching PK-5 Health and Physical Education.  

I am originally from New Jersey where I grew up in a wonderful lake community.  I had many sports available to me, especially in the summer.  This is where I decided that teaching elementary physical education & health was what I really wanted to pursue as a career.   After 4 great years at West Virginia University, I went back home to New Jersey where I taught PE and health for 8 years as well as coached swimming and basketball.

We moved down to Clayton 20 years ago and love it! I am a mom to 3 sons, 2 daughters-in-laws, and 2 granddaughters who all  in NC.   I enjoy sewing sweet dresses and quilts for the girls, but also home accessories with my small sewing business--Creative Custom Sewing.   I also try to play as much tennis as I can!
