Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year! 
In case you are wondering how to pronounce my last name: "Shh-Off". 

Teacher Bio
I grew up in the countries of Jordan and South Africa before moving to Chattanooga to attend Covenant College. After my degree in education, I loved the area so much I decided to stay. This is my seventh year teaching math and I'm excited to have a social studies class too (because I love geography and culture). Over the summer, I completed my Master of Education in K-8 Mathematics Education through the University of Georgia, and I was also able to attend some professional development of how to integrate the technology in our VW eLab into my classes. I love learning through new experiences so I'm excited for what we will explore. When I'm not at school, I love zumba, crafts and baking, and coffee or movies with friends.
