Ms. Beth Shirley

Hello! My name is Beth Shirley. I am a Special Education Teacher at Lawrence Free State High School. I provide support and instruction to students with individualized education plans. I have been at Free State since 2017. Before Free State, I taught in USD 497's Community Transition Program for 18 to 21-year-olds. I am super excited to be here! I love teaching and helping young adults work towards success.
