Mr. John Wilshire M.Ed.
I am a special education teacher at NeSmith Elementary school. This is my 6th year in Community ISD. I spent 4 years at McClendon as a Special Education Teacher and last year was my first year here at NeSmith. I do Inclusion for 5th-grade students in math, ELAR, science, and social studies, however, I work with any student that needs help. This is my 8th year in education. This will be my 6th 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 12 years. I could not go a day without my loving wife Brenda by my side. We live in Wylie with our three beautiful daughters Jewel (10), Braelyn (10), and Everleigh (Birdie) (8). 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.
Please feel free to reach out to me anytime that you need.
