Ms. Penny Shephard


My name is Penny Shephard and this is my 14th year as a special education teacher and my second year at Robert E. Lee. I moved to Tyler from Austin, Texas where I was a high school Life Skills teacher for 5 years and a Transition teacher for 7 years.  So far, I have really enjoyed living and working in Tyler!  I graduated from Texas A&M University in College Station in 2005 and have been teaching since.  I am certified to teach Special Education EC-12, Physical Education EC-12, Health EC-12 and Elementary EC-6th grade and also have my ESL Supplemental certification.

My goal as a special education teacher is to help each of my students reach their greatest potential.
