Mrs. Shelby Mincey

Hello!

My name is Shelby Mincey, I am a first year teacher at MLKJJHS. I teach 7th grade science as well as the Automation and Robotics elective class.

As a new teacher I am still becoming a part of the famous Tiger Team but am enjoying getting to know the variety of scholars that attend our school. I have had a passion for science since I was young, spending my time dreaming of working with tigers. It was a dream I actually pursued and achieved earning a BS in Zoology with a minor in Wildlife from Humboldt State University in 2014 I then interned for big cat sanctuaries in AR and NV for a year. It took 13 years to reach my dream, some have to strive much longer for theirs. I plan on supporting others to go for their dreams as a teacher while teaching science with passion. That being said, I find it wonderfully ironic that the first school I get to teach at is home of the Tigers!

My elective class is automation and robotics which includes design and modeling. Scholars learn how to design and build simple and complex mechanisms. Starting with design they draw to communicate ideas, then we apply the drawings to iterative building. The builds change to simple mechanisms in robotics finishing with the addition of electronics and coding to create automated systems. I also advise the robotics club which meets twice a week at lunch. In the future I hope to expand these times.

If you ever need help I am available before school, during lunch and after school Thursdays and Fridays.

I look forward to giving MLKJJHS my all!
