Mrs. Shaina Chandler

"If a child cannot learn the way that we teach, maybe we should teach the way they learn."- Ignacio Estrada My name is Shaina Chandler and I am a Dade County native. This is my second year at DMS and my eleventh school year with Dade County Schools. I received my teaching certificate from Western Governors University in May of 2022 after attending Northeast Alabama Community College and the University of Alabama earlier in my education. I have a deep passion for serving my community and their children. I want my students to leave the classroom feeling loved, supported, and ready to achieve their goals in education as well as in life. This school year I will be serving students along with Mr. Blake, Mrs. Baugh, and Mrs. Bell as well as in my own classroom for two class periods.

    Students will: 

    • Write narratives to develop real or imagined experiences or events using effective technique, relevant descriptive details, and well-structured event sequences.

    • Write arguments to support claims with clear reasons and relevant evidence.
    • Cite textual evidence to support analysis of what the text says explicitly as well as inferences drawn from the text.
    • Trace and evaluate the argument and specific claims in a text, distinguishing claims that are supported by reasons and evidence from claims that are not.
