1st Grade Teacher
Hello, My name is Shannon Sommers!
I will be teaching first grade this year and am super excited! I started my teaching career as a Kindergarten teacher, then taught first. Next was fifth grade, then continued on to third grade and lastly taught gifted and talented. My first degree is in Social Work which I attained from the University of North Carolina at Wilmington. I then received my teaching certification from there as well. East Carolina is where I sought out my Master's degree and then received my Board Certification in early childhood elementary. I consider myself to be a lifelong learner. I hope that I will instill this value in your child and their first-grade year will be filled with wonderful memories.
My whole life I have lived at the beach, just in different states. I was born in Point Pleasant Beach, NJ moved to Wrightsville Beach for college, then after that, moved to Hatteras Island, NC. Next up was Myrtle Beach and is where I call my home. Surfing, playing tennis, working out, riding my bike, strolling for shells and traveling are my hobbies.
This is going to be an awesome year! I look forward to meeting you!
