Third Grade

Mrs. Barker


Hello, My name is Shana Barker and I am so thrilled to be the Third Grade teacher here at Shaffer Elementary! I graduated from California State University, Chico with a Bachelor’s of Arts in Communication and Science Disorders in 2014. I then went on to receive my teaching credential from Chico State in 2015. This is my second year here at Shaffer and I just love our little school! Thank you for making me feel at home and I look forward to an amazing 2016-2017 school year.


About Our Class

In Third Grade we like to practice the Shaffer ROCKS rules. We try to always be Respectful, On Task, Cooperative, Kind, and Safe. 


I am hoping for a successful year full of fun and learning! This year we have a new Language Arts Curriculum and I am very excited to implement it in our Third Grade classroom. We also have a new curriculum for our computer lab! This curriculum will help your child become familiar with how to use the computer, internet, and useful tools such as word. If you would like to view the curriculum, please feel free to come see me before or after school. This curriculum will help your child have a successful school year as well as prepare them for state testing in April.


Classroom updates:

Parents, now that we have all of our materials, please expect your child to have math homework Monday through Thursday nights.


Parent/ Teacher conferences will be coming up in just a couple short weeks. Please return signed request sheets in as soon as possible to secure the best time for you to come to the conference.


Please feel free to contact me anytime and don’t hesitate to come visit us in the classroom!
