Good to be @ DDMS...

So Happy to See You at this Great Place to Learn!

Welcome 6th graders!  I can't wait to start another great new year.   

My name is Shelby Houghton. I teach Social Studies for the 6th Grade Dolphin Team. This will be my seventh year teaching at Dillard Drive. As of this year I have been teaching for 16 years total with 6 of those years teaching 5th graders.  My first three years of teaching were spent in Phoenix, AZ.

I grew up in the Midwest in the states of Iowa and Nebraska and graduated from the University of Nebraska in 2001.  I have been married for ten years and we have a daughter that is in the fourth grade.   

*In September we will have a curriculum night to explain the grading system and basic descriptions of what will be taught throughout the year.

*Communication for the team is mostly e-mail and phone based. To contact me simply send an e-mail to and I will reply as quickly as possible. We can be contacted by phone at (919)233-4228.

***Much more information will be coming as the school year gets rolling. I am chomping at the bit to usher in a new class of 6th graders for my Ancient Civilizations class. I look forward to building relationships and teaching all of your children.
