Hunters Point Community Middle School
Long Island City, NY
Shannon is one of the most selfless educators I know! As a Special Educator she advocates for the needs of students and their families! In addition she is a phenomenal PE teacher who had kids moving, even virtually, all pandemic long. She coaches basketball and track, helps struggling readers develop the skills they need, pushes in to provide support for students with IEPs in 6th grade SS, dons the school mascot costume to get students to pumped AND always has a smile on her face! Did I mention she often does all of these things in the SAME DAY!! She really is the best! And I am so thankful to have her as a colleague!
