        Welcome to Kindergarten! My name is Caitlin Shiyou. I was born and raised in Tupelo, Mississippi. I graduated from Mississippi State University in 2012 with a degree in Elementary Education. I am a huge Mississippi State and Cowboys fan! My husband and I have one little boy named Parks and he is 3 years old. I am very blessed. I am so excited to be teaching kindergarten this year! I previously taught first grade here at Decker Prairie for three years.  Your children impact my life each and every day! Let's have an outstanding year :).
 
I look forward to getting to know you over the coming year! Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions!
