Mrs. Shanna Gatlin

Hello, my name is Shanna Gatlin, and I am a third grade teacher here at Van Buren Elementary. This will be my third year as an elementary school teacher and my first year here teaching at Van Buren Elementary. I am so glad to be a part of this school and an even bigger part of your child's education.

I am married to Roy Gatlin, who is also a part of PNGISD at the high school, and we are expecting our first child in early December.

I am very excited for this new school year to start, and I am eager to meet each of you. I look forward to a great year here at Van Buren Elementary. 

Welcome to third grade!

    3. Work quietly
    4. Respect school property

    The second week of school your child will start receiving homework Monday-Thursday. The homework needs to be done at home and checked and signed by a parent. If a student does not return their homework they will miss recess and have to write the code of conduct the next day in study hall. It is important for your child to do their homework each night to ensure their success in third grade.
