Name: Ms. RileyGrade: 2ndRoom: 205Email: Shannon.Riley@slps.orgI am excited to have your child in my class this year and guide them as they learn through a virtual approach. As a constructivist teacher, I look forward to building a community focusing on character education, student-driven activities, and hands-on, minds-on learning!This is my eighth year teaching at Wilkinson ECC. I have experience teaching Kindergarten, 1st grade, 2nd grade, gifted students, and special education students. I have a Master’s degree in Early Childhood Education and a Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education from Maryville University. This summer, I completed my STEM certification at Maryville. During the summer months I work for Maryville University's Young Scholars and Science/Robotics Programs. I also teach a science/robotics program on the weekends a few months each winter (also at Maryville).
I grew up on a farm, raising pigs and some other animals. I have a turkey that is 18 years old! I've had him since I was a kid. He still lives at my parents' place and I try to visit him often! I enjoy spending time with my family (especially my 2 nieces who are 4 months old & 2 years old), playing with my dog, running, dancing, hunting, and fishing.I look forward to meeting everyone virtually!
