Congratulations ACH Class of 2021!
Hi there! My name is Shannon and I am honored to be serving A Child's Haven Preschool as director. I have spent the past 13 years in Marketing and Advertising. I majored in Horticulture and spent a lot of time with children Kinder-5th, educating and certifying them through the JMG Program, Texas A&M Agri-Life Extension, in summer programs. I have 3 amazingly smart and talented children with Dyslexia and spent 2 years homeschooling, preparing for middle school and filling the gaps in their education. For the past 10 years I have been a strong advocate for the rights of children and their families with ADHD and Dyslexia.
On a personal note, I am a mother of 4, Aidan 18, Hunter 15, Zachary 13, and Madison 11, and a dog mom of two. I love gardening and the outdoors, my favorite food is spaghetti, and spending time with my kids is my absolute favorite thing to do.
I am so thrilled to welcome you and your family to ACH and together we will celebrate each child’s journey!
This is my first year teaching at Child's Haven, and I am so excited to be apart of this team. My background is in early childhood and elementary education. I taught 4th Language Arts for 4 years before I decided or stay home with my two little ones, Tate and Cora. I can't wait to get back in the classroom to help children bloom to their full potential. I enjoy creating hands on experiences and fostering a love a learning in children of all ages.My husband and I love to spend our family time outdoors! We are often camping if we have a few days to get away. My other hobbies include cooking and curling up with a good book.

Amber is a 7th grader, Julie is a 6th grader and Derek is a 4th grader. I love reading, spending time outside, and quilting.
This is my third year at A Child’s Haven. I am excited to teach the 3's class. It’s a fun age to watch the children develop into their own person. I have 2 kids. Hayden is my daughter and will be in 3rd grade and Holden, my son, will start Kinder at Whitestone Elementary. I have been married for 9 years to my husband, Hunter, who works for The City of Austin. In my free time I enjoy reading, practicing yoga, and hanging out with my family and friends.
I’m an industrial engineer with a passion for teaching. I started teaching while going to college and I knew right away that was my calling. I think kids should have fun while they learn; I enjoy telling silly jokes, making funny voices, dancing around, and doing whatever it takes to engage students, motivate them to participate, and help them feel safe and confident. My husband and I moved to Texas 6 years ago and we love it! We have 3 boys, ages 10, 6 and 1. We like playing video games, board games, jigsaw puzzles, reading, and tacos!
