Katie Self3rd - 8th Literacy Coach

I am a mama of 3 amazing kids and a new Gigi (grandma). I LOVE reading, coffee, cheer, and Christmas! My favorite vacation spot is the mountains. I could eat cheese pizza every day and never get tired of it.

Shayna ShortK-2 Instructional Coach

Hello, my name is Shayna Short, I am the K-2 Instructional Coach at Lake Point Academy. I graduated from the University of Central Florida with my Bachelors in Elementary Education with my ESOL and Reading Endorsements. I have been an educator in the Florida School Systems for 12 years. I became interested in becoming a certified teacher after working for the school board as a camp counselor for 4 summers where I taught kids how to climb a ropes course. I have a passion to always "find the fun" while learning and to spread that mindset with the children of our future.

My favorite part of the day is waking up and having a cup of coffee. My dream vacation would be to Greece. I could eat pizza every single day!
