Welcome to our first grade webpage! My name is Shayla Billian and this is my first year teaching! This past year, I was a long-term substitute in two different kindergarten classes in the DeForest Area School District. In 2012, I graduated from Clemson University in South Carolina with a degree in Early Childhood Education. I am originally from the Boston, M.A. area, and recently moved to Madison with my boyfriend, Rob.
When I am not in the classroom, I love to read (especially James Patterson), bake, run and craft! I am an avid sports fan and love watching all types of games-- especially the Patriots, Bruins and Clemson Tigers. If you ever have any questions, comments or concerns, please don't hesitate to contact me. My email address is and my phone number is (508) 446-1323. I am looking forward to a wonderful, exciting year of growing and learning with my first graders!
