Marshall County Schools Superintendent Dr. Shelby Haines is often heard stating the mantra “educating kids, building communities.” As superintendent since 2019, she said she feels that is truly the role of Marshall County’s education community.
“My educational philosophy is that all students can learn, albeit not all in the same fashion, but they can learn. As an educational system, we need to assess the child’s strengths and needs and make an individual plan or educational path for them. Every child can be a successful. As part of the community, they need to find their niche and as a school system, we can help them do that.”
A former special education director and behavior analyst, Dr. Haines is a product of Marshall County Schools and the Marshall County community.
“It is an absolute pleasure to give back to the school system and the community. We are in this business to educate kids, obviously, but in turn we need strong community partnerships to better the community for the future,” Haines said.
Currently, Dr. Haines serves on the Marshall County Lions Club working to provide vision services and products to the community. In addition to her professional memberships listed below, she is also member of the Marshall County Chamber of Commerce and a member of the Marshall County FRN board.
In her free time, she enjoys gardening and preserving food including vegetables, meats and spices.
