SHANNON ALLEN | RM. 27

I recevied my B.ED from UH Manoa & M.ED in Teacher Leadership with a focus in STEM Education from USC (University of Southern California).  I believe that each child is a unique individual who needs a secure, caring, and stimulating atmosphere in which to grow and mature emotionally, intellectually, physically, and socially. It is my desire as a educator to help students meet their fullest potential in these areas by providing an environment that is safe, supports risk-taking, and invites a sharing of ideas. There are three elements that I believe are conducive to establishing such an environment, (1) the teacher acting as a guide, (2) allowing the child's natural curiosity to direct his/her learning, and (3) promoting respect for all things and all people. For myself, teaching provides an opportunity for continual learning and growth. One of my hopes as an educator is to instill a love of learning in my students, as I share my own passion for learning with them. I feel there is a need for compassionate, strong, and dedicated individuals who are excited about working with children. In our competitive society it is important for students to not only receive a solid education, but to work with someone who is aware of and sensitive to their individual needs. I am such a person and will always strive to be the best educator that I can be.

I obtained my BS in Business Management with a Minor English & my MA in Teaching, specializing in Special Education.  I look forward in learning from and sharing with students the life skills and background they need to be prepared for challenges in life while providing a well-rounded standards based education to help them in their chosen career path.
