1st Grade Assistant Teacher
Shannon’s passion for assisting can be traced back to helping her Aunt with her 1st grade class in Tennessee during school breaks from Ohio, where she grew up. It was during these visits where she got to see a passion for learning in the eyes of these young students. Being helpful is one of Shannon’s values; To be able to help just one child grasp a concept or idea and build upon it with joy and wonderment is such a reward.
This is Shannon’s 3rd year with Fernleaf. Working as an assistant teacher last year with the 2nd graders was truly an incredible experience. These kiddos are so creative and bright, they really bring joy to my day. 1st grade is sure to be inspiring.
Shannon is a graduate of East Tennessee State University, where she majored in Mass Communications with focus on Advertising and Art. When she is not busy being a multitasking Ninja, she can be found singing karaoke, checking out local events, or treasure hunting at thrift stores.
