Mrs. Dawn Sheforgen

Welcome to my classroom!  My name is Dawn Sheforgen, and I have been teaching English at South High since 2006. I am married and have two boys Mac and Oscar. I consider myself a swimmer and love to be around the water. I also love reading and writing!

In my early years, my family moved around from England to Louisiana, to California, but the majority of my school years was spent in Ponca City, Oklahoma. I graduated from Billings West High School in Billings, Montana. As a child I participated in swimming, soccer, basketball, and track. I am pretty competitive whether it's sports or a friendly board game.

I attended Kansas University and was a member of the varsity swim team. I earned a Bachelor's degree in Journalism-Business Communications from KU and later gained my secondary teaching education from Kansas Wesleyan. Before becoming a teacher I worked as a reporter and an assistant aquatics director (coach, swim instructor, site supervisor, etc.)

I love to laugh and have fun, and I hope we can do lots of that this year. In addition, though, I do expect that we can get down to business when needed and enjoy it in the process. I have high expectations for each freshman to meet this year. Let me work with you and I know each one of you can be successful! Have a great Freshmen year! 

Parents: Your role in helping your student be successful is immense. Please contact me with any questions or concerns you may have about your student or the assignments. The quickest way to get a response from me is via e-mail: dawn.sheforgen@usd305.com . You can also reach me on my school phone: 309-3773. I look forward to meeting you at Back to School open house and/or parent teacher conferences!

Hello! My name is Mrs. Byarlay. I am a 30-year-old Afghanistan Veteran, wife, and mother of two girls! My stepdaughter (my first mini-me) is 12 years old, and my baby girl was born in June of 2017. We have two awesome dogs: Charlie, our 9-10 year old 90 lb. Labrador, and Ruby, our 9 year old mini-dachshund. Life is never dull!

 

I am a Student Teacher from Kansas State University in Manhattan, Kansas. Though I have lived in Salina since 2010, I have commuted to Manhattan for the last 3 years in pursuit of dual Bachelor’s degrees in English and Secondary Education. This semester I not only have the opportunity to student teach English 1 and 2 in Mrs. Sheforgen’s classroom, but I am blessed with a 5-minute commute to school! I look forward to teaching and learning alongside some fantastic Freshmen and Sophomores here in our great City of Salina at Salina South High!
