Hello! My name is Shelly Williams and I live in Newton, Texas. I have lived in Newton for almost my entire life! I graduated from Newton High School in 1989. (Go Eagles!) I received my teaching degree from Stephen F. Austin State University. (Ax'em Jacks!) I am married to Jimmy Williams, Jr. and we have three beautiful daughters, a son-n-law, a beautiful granddaughter and a handsome grandson. I am excited to be a dyslexia therapist at Newton ISD. I completed my dyslexia training at Scottish Rite Hospital for Children in Dallas, TX in May of 2018. I also have a master’s degree as a Reading Specialist at Stephen F. Austin State University. I love my community and feel privileged to be able to teach the children of Newton County. I have been teaching elementary school for 23 years. I love to read and one of my goals is for my students to gain a love for reading.
