Ms. Shannon Tuggle


I am the Academic Instructional Coach (AIC) assigned to Carr Lane VPA Middle School. I have been an AIC since August 2012 and I have been at Carr Lane VPA Middle School since August 2017. As an AIC, I participate in many roles to support students and teachers. These roles include being a resource and classroom supporter, data coach, mentor, learner, school leader, learning facilitator, curriculum and instructional specialist, catalyst for change, and relationship builder all of which leads to increased student achievement. 

I have been an educator for St. Louis Public Schools since 2007. I have worked in the following teaching roles: middle school Cross-Categorical Special Education, middle school Reading Specialist, and high school English. During the summer session of 2019, I had the opportunity to be an elementary Site Leader and I absolutely loved working with the younger students. 

Prior to working for St. Louis Public Schools, I worked as a Child Abuse and Neglect Social Service Worker for the state of Missouri for five years. I worked at the state level of Social Service Work in varying capacities for a total of nine years.

When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with my daughter and my sorority sisters. I am a member of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority Inc. I enjoy eating, sleeping, traveling, tutoring, completing word finds and Sudoku puzzles, and reading Reader’s Digest. I love nature and the beauty it has to offer.

I Believe That Everyone Is Capable of Being Successful.
