Mr. John Wilshire M.ED.
I am a special education teacher at McClendon Elementary school. I teach resource math for 2nd through 5th grade students. I do inclusion for 3rd grade through 5th grade in math, ELAR, science, and social studies. This is my 8th year in education. This will be my 5th year teaching special education. I have also served as Life Skills aide for a year and a resource room aide for a year in Wylie ISD, as well as a substitute teacher for a year in three school districts.
My desire to become a teacher began when I was in 7th grade. At that time, I was diagnosed with dyslexia and my mother told me that I would not amount to anything in this world but a bum on the street. I was told by my dad that I would be something I just had to work hard at it. Since that time I wanted to show students that it does not matter what disability you have, you can still be whatever you want to be.
I am currently married to my best friend and companion for the last 11 years. I could not go a day without my loving wife Brenda. We live in Wylie with our three beautiful daughters Jewel (9), Braelyn (9), and Everleigh (Birdie) (7). I am so proud to call the Brave Nation my educational home. I love coming here and working with the kids. They make every day an adventure.
