Ms. Shannon Gary

  Hello, my name is Shannon Gary and this will be my 21st year teaching. I am originally from Lincoln, Nebraska. I come from a large family as I am the youngest of 7.  I have 2 children.  I graduated from ASU West  Summa Cum Laude with a Bachelor's in Elementary Education.  I taught one year in third grade at Greenbriar Elementary, and then moved here to Desert Mountain.  I have been here now for 20 years.  I taught third grade for 3 years, and then joined the 4th grade team, and taught 4th grade for 12 years.  I had the opportunity to move up to 5th grade for the  2019-2020 school year.

 Some of the things I enjoy doing are spending time with my family and friends, going to the beach, and watching football ( I am a Huskers fan and an AZ Cardinals fan) .
