Each school year, Shannon guides her students through a publishing project, designed to spark a love of writing for the students. A picture book is created by the students, and each students’ artwork is then created into their own unique stuffed animals. This annual project by Shannon resulted in her being included in a segment, “From Letters to love: 10 times teachers inspired us in 2019”.

Shannon also introduced us to the “Book Tasting” and her version of the “Reading Chair”.
