My name is Shannon and I was born in Phoenix, AZ. I was raised in “the City” (San Francisco) but also lived in San Diego, Nashville, & New Jersey. I speak English only. I have about 20 years of teaching experience and prior to that was in banking for 20 years. I truly love teaching and connecting with children and families. I have taught 1st, 2nd, 3rd grade as well as pre-school. When I am not working, I love yoga and hiking. I live in Oakland and have three wonderful children ages 21, 24, & 25 who keep me laughing and young!
