Hello! My name is Shannon Walker. I am entering into my 13th year of teaching this year! I currently teach sixth grade ELA and SS at Locust Grove Elementary.
I graduated from Penn State University in 2002 and earned my masters from York College along with my Reading Specialist certification in 2009. I have also earned my Masters + 60 additional credits by taking various courses at Penn State York, Wilkes, Millersville and Carlow University. I consider myself to be a lifelong learning and am always trying to extend myself to learn all I can. Reading is one of my favorite things to do in my spare time and I enjoy sharing this love with my students and encouraging them to read, read, READ! :)
I am a Bucks County native and graduated from Central Bucks East HS in Doylestown, PA where my family still resides. I enjoy spending time with my husband, Chad, our 1 year old son, Callen, and our 5 year old German Shepherd, Dexter. My boys keep me very busy, but in my spare time, (aside from reading) I enjoy running, listening to music, shopping, and traveling.
Teaching is my dream job and I feel very fortunate to be doing what I love every single day.
