Hello! Welcome to Mrs. DeLine’s Teacher Page!

DSC_0095 Deline

I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself and express my excitement and passion for teaching! I graduated from Swan Valley in 2007 (GO VIKES!). I then attended Alma College where I majored in Elementary Education and minored in Language Arts and Spanish. I also pitched all four years for the Alma College Softball Team (GO SCOTS!). This is my fifth year teaching at Shields Elementary and my fourth year teaching Young 5s. Before coming to Shields Elementary, I taught pre-school in New Lothrop right after I graduated from Alma in December 2011.

I enjoy being active and the outdoors.

I also have a passion for softball. I help run pitching clinics and help coach JV softball at the high school.

I enjoy spending time with my husband, David, and my son Liam. Liam was born February 2015.

It is my mission as a teacher to inspire all children to embrace who they are and nurture a joy of learning!
