We Are Leaping Into Learning!

Parents and Students, I want to wish you a Merry Christmas and a happy new year!


Hello! Welcome to Kindergarten! My name is Shalette Freeman. I grew up in Murfreesboro, Tennessee. I graduated from MTSU with a Bachelors Degree and attended Fisk University in Nashville, Tennessee. I taught one year in Nashville Public Schools. I also taught 3 years in First Grade here at Blackman Elementary and the rest has been in Kindergarten. I have 2 boys that I adore, who are enrolled in College! I am a Singer/ Songwriter, I love to sing in my church choir, I love sports, good food, good movies and I enjoy reading a good book. It is an honor and my priviledge to be your child's Teacher!
