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, and I will be sure to get back to you by the end of the day.
