    The other candidates (who were previously selected as their buildings’ Teacher of the Year) included: Diane Stafford (formerly at Avon High School); Ashley Koontz (Avon Middle School North); Katie Littig (Avon Middle School South); Troy Warthan (Avon Intermediate School East); Holly Clark (Cedar Elementary); Jennifer Guerrero (Hickory Elementary); Andrea Brown (Maple Elementary); Andrea Rader (Pine Tree Elementary); Sarah O’Brien (River Birch Elementary); Tracy Wheeler (Sycamore Elementary); and Monica Balash (White Oak Elementary).  
     

    Mrs. Shepard received a bachelor’s degree from Indiana University and a master’s degree from Indiana Wesleyan. She has taught in Avon Schools for 14 years. Avon Community School Corporation submitted Mrs. Shepard's impressive portfolio to the Indiana Department of Education for the state's selection process of the Indiana Teacher of the Year award.
