About Mrs. Shaffer

I am a proud graduate of the University of Houston (Go Cougs!) and have been teaching Kindergarten since 2005. I am married and have 2 step-children and 4 children (32, 30, 24, 24, 16, 15) who attend or graduated from Willis ISD.  I also have a 160 lb. Great Dane who is completely spoiled and thinks he is a cat!
 
P.S. Coffee is my "happy place"...completely addicted! :)
