Miss Shannon Langley
I am so excited to be here as part of the Donaldson Elementary team. I graduated from Northern Arizona University (go Lumberjacks!) and began my teaching career shortly after graduation. Since then, I have taught kindergarten, special education preschool through 8th grade, and first grade English language development.
Defining Moment in Education
For as long as I can remember, I wanted to be a teacher. I grew up making my younger brothers play school with me everyday even before I started school myself. As I began my own journey through education I began to realize that not all teachers were the same. I was lucky with many of the teachers that I had in school. They were truly passionate about teaching and helping children. This continued to make my desire to become a teacher grow. I wanted to be like them, the truly amazing ones. My youngest brother was not so lucky during his early years in school. He had teachers that could not handle the differences that he brought into the classroom. This was what sparked my desire to teach special education. I knew at that moment that I needed to be like one of those amazing teachers that I had in my early years of school for the children who came into school, like my brother, and needed a little more support and love.
Core Educational Belief
Education is not just something that is done at school. Parents and teachers need to work together in order to educate the whole child.
Not all children learn in the same way or at the same time. As a teacher, it is my job to provide rich experiences to help ALL children know that they can be successful.
