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. This is my fourth year at Free State; prior to this year I taught in USD 497's Community Transition Program for 18-21 year olds with special education needs. I am super excited to be here! I love teaching and helping young adults work towards success.
