Ms. Nancy Shafer

Hi!  Welcome to Glendale-Kenly Elementary Health and Physical Education!  This is my 2nd year year at Glendale-Kenly Elementary School and my 19th year teaching PK-5 Health and Physical Education.  

I am orginally from New Jersey where I grew up in a magical 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.

I am a mom to 3 sons, 2 daughter-in-laws,  and 2 granddaughters.   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!

  • Updated COVID-19 Quarantine Guidance

    There have been significant changes to the Strong Schools NC toolkit that affects the quarantine procedures our staff and students must follow if they are exposed to a positive case of COVID-19. Any student or staff member who is currently quarantined due to an exposure of a positive COVID-19 case may return to school or work tomorrow, unless the close contact is a housemate. We are able to make this adjustment because our district requires masks for all students, staff, and guests.

  • ACCESS testing for English Language Learners

    North Carolina schools are required to administer ACCESS for ELLs 2.0 to all students identified as English Learners (ELs) in the spring of each year to determine their progress in learning English. Each student is tested in four areas: Listening, Speaking, Reading, and Writing. This assessment helps us monitor their English language development.

This is a change from the previous 10 day quarantine time.
