My name is Shannon Shonebarger, and I am an Early Childhood Special Education Teacher at Mary Louise Phillips Elementary. Originally from Ohio, I moved to Fort Worth, Texas in 2004 and was blessed to meet my wonderful husband. Together, we have five children who are the light of our lives. In my spare time, I love to travel with my family to any place that includes water and hiking trails or attend a myriad of football, softball, or swimming events that my children are all involved with.
Very early on in my education at Ohio University, I volunteered at a specialized school for students with varying needs. This is where my admiration and passion for educating students began. I am now beginning my nineteenth year as special education teacher and I consider it an honor to continue to advocate, educate and learn from my students.
I believe that it is my job to educate and nurture each and every one of my students through a variety of meaningful practices that provide rigor and positivity. By holding myself accountable for individualizing educational needs, my students will generalize skills throughout the entire school building as well as within their communities.
