About me: My name is Shelley Cliche. This is my first year as a special education teacher at Middleton Elementary School. Prior to this new role, I worked as a paraeducator for three years here at MES. I am excited to have the opportunity to continue to work with the students and staff. Currently, I am working to complete my Master’s Degree in Special Education from Plymouth State University, which I will be earning in May 2020. My education philosophy is to build relationships, set high expectations and help students discover their strengths and talents as both learners and individuals. When I am not here at MES, I love spending time with my family. Some of my favorite activities include reading, kayaking, hiking and traveling. I am excited to have a great year!
