Shannon Teets started her teaching career in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. She has a very diverse background in education where she began as a long term substitute for fourth grade, became a gifted teacher, and then spent four years as a sixth grade Social Studies and Communication Arts teacher at her Alma Mater, Elizabethtown Area School District. In those four years, Shannon worked on various committees, led student organizations, and obtained her Master's Degree in Technology Integration in 2009. In October 2010, she married Bryan Teets, who had an offer on the table from Washington University School of Medicine. The following January, Bryan finished his Doctoral program at Temple University in Philadelphia and the couple transferred to St. Louis to begin a new chapter in their life together. Upon arriving in St. Louis, Shannon worked as a technology teacher assistant in Ladue School District for the first semester of 2011-2012 school year. At the end of the second semester, she accepted a Third Grade Long Term Substitute position at Old Bonhomme for the remainder of the school year. During that time, Shannon was able to serve on committees and was the lead organizer for Old Bonhomme's Science Fair and Science Night held in April 2012. Shortly after, Shannon was thrilled to accept a full time teaching position at Chesterfield Day School. With experience in teaching Social Studies and Communication Arts, as well as in differentiation, enrichment, and collaborative learning, she feels that CDS is the perfect place for her to continue her teaching career.
