Hi Everyone. I'm Shannon and I'm the Year 2/3 class teacher on Fridays.
I earned my teaching qualification at the University of Tasmania. My professional experience includes working in school in Perth, London, and Oman, where I was one of three teachers at an international primary school.
I first came to Kerry Street in 2013 as a volunteer to gain more experience when returning to teaching after having my children. I began relief teaching at the school in 2014 and was offered a role as an Education Assistant in 2015.
I value the community-oriented nature of Kerry Street and how nurturing the environment here is. I believe that as educators, we need to provide a space that caters for our students' individual learning styles, interests and needs. Kerry Street does that in a fun and safe way.
When I'm not teaching the Year 2/3 class on a Friday, I'm working alongside Veronika as her Education Assistant. In that capacity, I am lucky to work closely with many students throughout the school. I love helping them to develop new skills, and the opportunity to witness their successes and achievements.
