Shannon Maxon

Hello there!!


My name is Shannon Maxon and I am a 3rd grade teacher here at Innovation Academy. I am from Washington state and have been living in Tucson for 5 years! I went to school at Western Washington University in the beautiful Pacific Northwest and received a major in Special Education and certification in Elementary Education. This will be second year at IA and I am so thankful to be part of this wonderful community! 

Since completing my bachelor’s degree in 2017 I have completed many certifications and trainings in the STEMazing project,, Google, Picture Perfect Stem, and the Space Foundation. I am also working on my National Boards! I love learning new things to bring back into the classroom.


Outside of teaching I enjoy running, golfing, working out, hiking with my husband and two dogs, and reading! 


My door is always open! If you ever have any questions, want to chat, or want to volunteer in our classroom please do not hesitate to phone or email me!!
