Shannon BarrySocial Studies 6, 6th Grade Team Leader History
I grew up in Kansas City, MO before going to college in Springfield, MO and Chicago, then landing here in Tulsa to teach- making myself a proud resident of the Plains and Midwest for my whole life. I have a black cat named Frog who I might be a little bit obsessed with even though I’m allergic to her. When I’m not telling everyone to look at how cute she is, I love watching all types TV and reading all types of books. I’m involved in the Ok, So Story Slam and have been a finalist in the Best Storyteller in Tulsa competition two years in a row.
I took the leap of faith in becoming a teacher straight out of college because I believe that it’s one of the most important jobs that a person can do. Having the opportunity to cultivate a love of learning in young people, to help them find their passions, and give them high fives and encouragement along the way is the best way that I can imagine spending seven hours of my day. Every child deserves the opportunity to see themselves as innovators, creators, and explorers and that’s what I’m here to do!
