My name is Shannon Jones and I am so happy to be a part of the Crandall Pirates Family! This will be my 4th year teaching 1st grade. I earned my degree in my home state of Illinois. I then moved to Texas and previously taught in South Dallas at Thomas Tolbert Elementary. My family and I have now ventured to this part of Texas where we have fallen in love and bought a house! We have been residents of Heartland, TX for one year.
I will be partner teaching 1st grade with Mrs. Fairchild and Mrs. Blackmon. I will be teaching ELA/Reading, Mrs. Fairchild will be teaching Math and Phonics, and Mrs. Blackmon will be teaching Science\Social Studies, Writing, and Word Wall.
I have been married to my wonderful husband for 8 years and we are both big Chicago Bears fans! I have two handsome boys: Brayden in 2nd grade and Bradley in Crandall Daycare (he is the big age of 3). I also have a 3 year old cat named Bitsie, a 3 year old American Bulldog named Buddy, and a Pitbull puppy named Bella. We love to ride bikes, fish, watch football, and play board games.
I can not wait to meet everyone and learn all about your favorites. The fun thing about reading is finding books about our favorites! Here are some of my favorite things:
Movie- Harry Potter
Holiday- Thanksgiving (and my birthday in April!!)
Drink- Sweet Tea
Book- Llama Llama series by Anna Dewdney
I am ready and excited to start the 2017-2018 school year and look forward to meeting all of the wonderful Wilson families. I pride myself on being clear, organized, loving, patient, and always having open lines of communication. I know we can all work together as a team to make this year a wonderful learning experience for each student.
