Ms. ShafferMy name is Tina Shaffer and I am the administrative assistant for WCA. I love getting to know all the families and students through the many phone calls, webmails and visits that I have every week. I want families to know that if they are stuck or have any questions at all, I am available every day from 8-4pm and would work hard to get you an answer! If you haven’t figured it out already, I love to talk and meet new people, so don’t be shy and just give me a call!

Here is a long list of things that I love: coffee, scrapbooking, stamping, theater, photography, reading, shopping, boating, going up north and spending time friends and family! Speaking of family, I have 4 wonderful children of my own, Mason (18) in college, Gabe (16) and Breckyn (15) at the high school and Sydnie (12) who has just entered middle school. They certainly keep me quite busy but they also make me very happy and proud!
