Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Shelia Butler

8th Grade Science

I am very excited to be a part of the amazing staff at Powdersville Middle School.  This is my 28th year in education and my 16th in Anderson One.  I am a National Board Certified teacher and have a passion for kids and learning. I graduated from Winthrop University with a Bachelor of Science in Biology and have a Masters in Secondary Literacy and Reading.  I am certified in middle and high school science and math as well as being a Read to Succeed Coach. 

I have been married for 28 years as well. My husband, Greg, is the JV Softball coach at PVHS.

I have two incredible children.  My daughter, Mary Alice, is almost 21 and plays volleyball for North Carolina Wesleyan University. She is a junior who is majoring in communications with a double minor in Hispanic Studies and Journalism. My son, Adam, 26, just graduated from The University of Hawaii where he majored in history after leaving active duty as a Sergeant in the United States Marine Corps. He lives in Boston and is pursuing his teaching certification. 

In my spare time, I love to go camping (a lot), garden, tend to my chickens (yes, chickens), and take out our boat to fish.  I hope we have a great year at Powdersville Middle School this year!
