Kindergarten — Ms. Shearlock “Mama Muppet”

My name is Katie Shearlock, but I am better known as “Mama Muppet”. I was given that nickname in 2008 when my oldest daughter was in Kindergarten at Pensacola Beach Elementary School.

I have been working at PBES since 2015 in the kindergarten classroom. I LOVE my job and my Kindergarten “friends” because no two days are alike -it is truly a new adventure every day. I believe the enthusiasm, curiosity, and love of learning is captured best in the kindergarten classroom. There is no other grade I would rather teach!

My credentials include a BA in child development from Ashford University.

I grew up in Pensacola, Florida, and I feel a strong connection to the close–knit “beach” community and school family. I am the proud parent of two teenage daughters, both of whom are PBES graduates. We enjoy the relaxed lifestyle here in “paradise”.

I believe the most important thing I can do for each student is to instill and develop a lifelong love of learning.
