Mrs. Judy Shannon

Hello Parents and Students!
My name is Judy Shannon and I am thrilled to be your first grade teacher this year!
I was born and raised in Austin, Texas and received my Elementary Education degree from Baylor University with a concentration in Reading.  Sic ‘Em Bears!
I am excited to be teaching again and can’t wait to share this year with you as a proud Reed Owl!  Previously I have taught first grade for ten years in along with one year in second and third grades in the Irving, Lewisville and Round Rock areas. 
My husband, Patrick,( also a Baylor Bear) and our family moved to the McKinney area 8 years ago and have two sons, Joshua and Noah. Joshua attends UT- Austin and Noah will attend Collin Community College this fall.
They are sweet boys I love dearly.
We also have three big, crazy, loving dogs named Brook, Buddy and Bella who keep us laughing daily! I love taking them to the dogpark to play and have fun on the weekends. There’s never a dull moment with our 3 nutty pups!
In my spare time, I enjoy reading books, playing the piano and writing songs.
I also love playing board games and scrapbooking whenever possible.
I believe each child is a unique individual with varying gifts, and I can’t wait to learn, laugh and grow alongside your child this year.  Together we will make it a fun, fascinating and “fox-tastic” year! 
Please reach out to me if you ever have any questions. I want to make our first grade year together the best ever!
Thanks for your support.🌷
See you soon!
Judy Shannon
