Hello, my name is Shatona Gallup. I am married to Jason Gallup and together we have wonderful children: JJ, Kenzie, Kadence and Emilee. We attend Freewill Baptist Church. I grew up in Stratford, OK and once I graduated high school, I attended East Central University where I obtained my Bachelor’s Degree in English Education and a Masters of Education in Secondary School Administration. I have taught 1 semester at Little Axe Public Schools, 7 years at Sulphur Public Schools, and 6 years of night classes for Murray State College. I have been at Stratford since 2013 and I am extremely excited to be teaching in the same school system that I grew up in and my children are growing up in!
I believe that each child has not only the opportunity but the right to learn. As an educator it is our job to provide a secure and caring atmosphere so that they might grow emotionally, intellectually, physically, and socially. It is my desire as a teacher to help my students reach their full potential in all areas by not only instructing but by influencing and setting a good example.
