Mrs. Shellie Tolbert


I currently teach 2nd grade at Ellsworth Hill Elementary School. I am married to my wonderful husband Jim and have a beautiful daughter named Emma. We have lived in NE Ohio for three years now. During my time with Hudson City Schools, I served in two long-term substitute positions for the 19-20 school year in first and second grade. I then taught first grade for a year before taking a year off for maternity leave. 

Prior to teaching in Hudson, I lived in the NW Georgia area and taught for Hamilton County Schools in Chattanooga, TN for seven years. I taught first grade for three years, kindergarten for three years, and third grade for one year. I was born and raised in that area and my family is currently there now. 

I completed my undergraduate degree at Carson-Newman College in Jefferson City, TN. I also recently completed my master's degree in Educational Administration in August 2020 from Cleveland State University. 

I am proud to serve the families of the Hudson City School District and hope to nurture and instill the love of learning in the hearts and minds of each and every student.
