Shacarra Ishman
  • Hello and welcome to Science class!

    This is my second year as a teacher and my first year at FJH.

    I earned my BS in Biology from Xavier University of Louisiana and am currently completing my Masters in Education at Xavier. 

    It is my goal to instill a lifelong passion of science in all of my students. I have very high expectations of myself as a teacher as well as of my students and I have always found that to be a formula for success!

    I want this to be an enjoyable year for all of my students but also a productive, challenging and encouraging year.

    Communication is a huge part of your child's success. If you have any questions/concerns or would like to schedule a conference, you can contact me at shacarra.ishman@stpsb.org.
