Mrs. Shannon Olgin
I am so excited to be teaching Kindergarten and 1st grade Life Skills this year. This is my fifth year teaching at Nesmith Elementary in Community ISD. I have a passion for students who have special abilities. I myself acquired a rare neurological disorder in my twenties that affects my voice, so I can relate to my students' struggle to be understood. I want everyone to be able to see past my students' disabilities and see their incredible abilities. They are amazing!
I graduated from Howard Payne University with a Bachelor degree majoring in English and Sociology. I also have my Generalist EC-6, Special Education EC-12 and ESL teaching certifications. I met my husband Mark in college. We have been married 25 years and have three children (Sara, Caleb & Micah) and two Golden Retrievers (Gracie and Nellie).
My conference period is from 2:05 to 2:50 each day. I would love to meet and answer any questions about our program. You can also email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, and I will be sure to get back to you by the end of the day.
