Mrs. Shirley Whigham

Welcome back to the second half of the school year!  During these difficult times, it is important to have an open lines of communication with your child's teacher/case manager.  No one can predict what happens next, but we can all do our best to work with what we have to the best of our ability. 

If your child has co-taught Math or ELA in both elementary and middle school online, I am your go-to person.  I am excited to continue teaching at Belair K-8 since opening and look forward to a different but successful year.  Within our department, it is very important to know who to reach out to for certain grades and subjects.  You may click the teacher's name for their contact information or link to their website for further assistance.
