Hello! My name is Shannon Walker. I am entering into my 15th 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 learner and I am involved in numerous educational groups. I am very interested in the newest studies in education and how they can not only enhance my teaching, but help me to reach every single learner in my classroom. Reading is one of my favorite things to do in my spare time and I enjoy sharing this love with my students as I encouraging them to read, read, READ! :) I pride myself on my classroom's extensive book collection and can find a book for ANY reader!
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 2 year old son, Callen, our 4 month old son, Auden, and our 6 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. #lucky
