A Little Bit About Shannon
Hi! My name is Shannon. Early in my career, I served education as a mathematics teacher and instructional coach. It was then that I realized I wanted to reach every single student in the world! After all, my parents always told me to shoot for the stars! This is when I made my move to Region 4 where I served as a mathematics specialist for two years.
In 2015, my second son Max joined this world, and my oldest son Sam was entering Kindergarten. I decided to stay home… for three months. My love for helping others and teaching math brought me back to serve campuses and districts as a “hobby” while I enjoyed time with my young boys.
Over the past several years, I have served education in some of the greatest capacities. I have had opportunities to partner with the Houston Children’s Museum, United Way, the University of Houston, various campuses, districts, and like-minded educational companies leading me here – to my own website, blog, and online store. And I cannot thank each of these partnerships enough for choosing me to help better mathematics education!
I am excited for the future and even more excited to have my husband Brian and my boys, Sam and Max, as my biggest supporters – engaging in math conversations multiple times a day and always finding a different way to solve a problem when I ask!
In everything I do, I aim to instill a love of math in both the young and old. I believe that collaboration, questioning, and hands-on experiences are key in developing mathematicians!
