A little about me

Hi my name is Shelly Gude and I am the LSS teacher and IEP case manager for kindergarten through fifth grade. I am so excited to be returning to the STEM family and I cannot wait to get to know your students and build great relationships with you all.


One of the biggest reasons that I am thrilled to be at STEM is because I truly believe that students get the most out of their learning when they get to be immersed and involved in their learning. I believe that my place in all of this is to guide and provide supports to help my students build their confidence and skills so that they believe in themselves as much as I believe in them!


This is my sixth year teaching, I got started a little later in life. I have worked in a residential facility, an immersion charter school and a public elementary school.


I am a Colorado native and I wish that I could travel more.


My husband and I have four kids who keep us very busy, Maddi (14), Caleb (13), Jackson (7) and Ryley (6). Between them there is always at least on sport or activity going on. 


Again, I look forward to getting to know you and your children. Please do not hesitate to reach out with any questions
