Mrs. Shelby Esquivel

Hello Bennett Ranch Community! My name is Shelby Esquivel (Es-Ki-vel), and I am your child’s new third grade teacher! This will be my 9th year teaching 3rd grade, and I am ecstatic to continue to teach 3rd grade here and join the family this year! 


As a little background information, I graduated from The University of Kansas with my degree in Elementary Education and an endorsement in Special Education. This will be my 8th year of teaching overall, but I spent the first 5 years of my career in Douglas County. I absolutely love teaching and I truly cannot wait to get to know you and your child!


Outside of teaching, I am enjoying life as a new mom. This past spring, my husband and I were blessed with our daughter Magnolia, and we are obsessed. She is truly the light of our lives. I am an avid sports lover. Being from Chicago, hockey is a way of life, and I am a die-hard Blackhawks fan. I also thoroughly enjoy spending my fall and winter Sunday nights watching ‘Da Bears’ play football. I live for college basketball, and, more specifically, I live for the Kansas Jayhawks. Come March, I will be a part of the Madness as I am glued to a TV screen cheering on my Jayhawks, hoping Bill Self will take us to the National Championship. When there isn't a sporting event happening, my husband and I love to spend our time outdoors fishing and camping. We have three dogs (Lucy, Trout and Layla) who keep us busy. I also enjoy reading, going to concerts, and spending time with our friends and family.


This school year is going to be amazing, and I am more than excited to be learning alongside you and your kiddo! Please always reach out if you ever have any questions or concerns. I cannot wait to partner with you to make this the best year yet!
