Miss Shannon Schwering

My name is Shannon Schwering and this is my fourth year teaching Social Studies on the Valor ship at Harrison Intermediate!

I was born and raised in a small town called Osgood in the state of Indiana.  I went to college at Indiana University Purdue University Indianapolis for two years until I transferred to the Columbus location to finish my bachelor's degree in Elementary Education.  I graduated in 2010 with a certificate for general K-6 as well as technology integration.

Since then, I have almost 15 years working in the education field, and this will be my ninth year teaching in my own classroom. I knew I wanted to work with kids as a career even when I was one myself!  Teaching has always been such a rewarding experience for me.

About three years ago, I wanted to explore more than what Indiana had to offer and so I traveled in the summer of 2019 to little Wylie, Texas and haven't looked back!  Living in a new state on my own has definitely been a growing experience, especially during recent times, but I truly have Texas deep in my heart now; my family is disappointed I don't seem to be leaving here anytime soon!

I currently live in Wylie with my two cats, Finn and Theo.  When I'm not at Harrison, you can find me watching TV shows or movies snuggled up on my couch with my cats, reading a book poolside when its hot, or going out to eat with some friends.
