Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Shani Shortridge

I am a kindergarten teacher, wife, and mother of two grown boys. Currently my oldest is a junior at Montana State University and my youngest is a freshman at Boise State University. I grew up in Southern California and attended the University of California, Riverside where I received my undergraduate degree in liberal studies. I then completed my teaching credential at Cal State East Bay. We have lived in the Bay area now for 26 years. I have been teaching kindergarten at Smith for ten years and prior to that I taught first and second grade at Croce Elementary. I enjoy spending time with my family and my two labs and I love to travel.  My hobbies include running, hiking, skiing and just about anything related to being outdoors.
