    Hi! Welcome to my webpage!  

    My name is Michelle Burch, but you can call me "Shelly."  I was born in Tucson, Arizona while my dad was serving in the Air Force. We moved to Riverdale, Georgia when I was three months old.  I lived there for 5 years, then moved to Fayetteville, Georgia.  I cheered, danced, ran track, and played basketball when I was younger.  My 8th grade basketball team even went all the way to the state championship and WON! I graduated in 1992 from Fayette County High School (GO TIGERS!!) and started that same summer at Mercer University (GO BEARS!!).  I worked full time and went to school full time for the next four years.  I worked as a nanny, in a soda fountain, as a pharmacy tech., and as a secretary in a church.  I even got married during my junior year of college!   I have been living in McDonough ever since,  and have been married to my wonderful, amazing husband for 25 years!!!  Our two wonderful boys are Bailey (21) and Preston (18).  We love to spend time as a family traveling, camping, playing with our dogs (Max and Ruby), listening to my son jam out on his guitar, and just hanging out! Disney World is our favorite place to visit!!!  We have been attending McDonough Presbyterian Church for about 21 years, and love our church family!  This is my 16th year in education, and I LOVE it!  I have taught 2nd grade, 3rd grade, SAGE, and TAG.  This year I am serving as the Instruction and Personalized Learning Lead. If you have any questions about personalized learning, please don't hesitate to reach out.
