About Ms. Davis
My name is Shannon Davis. I am so excited to be starting my seventeenth year in education and my second year here in the Cape Henlopen School District. I loved my first year in Cape working as the Computer Lab Manager at Love Creek and I am excited to be a 1st grade teacher this year. I actually began my career teaching 1st grade in Baltimore, MD for two years before switching to 4th grade after receiving my Masters Degree in Technology for Educators from Johns Hopkins University. When Howard County Public Schools in Maryland added Technology to their related arts schedule, I taught Elementary Technology to students in grades K-5 in Laurel, MD for two years. My family then relocated to Delaware and I worked as the Instructional Technology Specialist for the Delmar School District for six years.
I have been living in Delaware for about 9 years now with my son Tony who has autism and inspired me to become certified in special education in addition to my elementary certification. In addition, I also became a certified school librarian for the State of Delaware, worked as a Library Media Specialist with the Seaford School District, and currently work part-time at the Rehoboth Beach Public Library. Through this role with the library, I love having the opportunity to serve my students outside of school, promoting literacy and supporting the community which has given me so much this past year.
When not in school, I love reading, being with my family, and traveling. I even completed my student teaching in England and used to live there with my family when I was younger. I love how reading and traveling can broaden a person’s horizons and deepen their understanding and appreciation of other cultures.
I am looking forward to continuing to be a lat of the Love Creek and Cape community this year!
We are Love Creek!
