Mrs. Shortell

Welcome to 8th grade at Lincoln Hall! This is my 23rd year teaching at Lincoln Hall and I have had the pleasure of working with our sixth through eighth grade students. Currently, I teach English, Math, and Academic Connections. In addition, many of your students will also see me helping out in Humanities, Social Studies, Science, and STEM. Eighth grade is a year full of growth and transitions. Please feel free to reach out to me or any of the teachers on our wonderful 8th grade team if you have any questions or concerns about your student.

"The way I see it isn't necessarily the way you see it, or the way it is, or ought to be. What's more important is that we're all looking for it and a way to see it." -Desi Di Nardo
