Ms. Shanna

has been working with young children on and off since 1998 when she was studying Deaf Education at Northern Illinois University.  She worked as the Students-at-Risk Coordinator at Herrick Middle School in 2001-2002.  She spent several years travelling and returned to Illinois in 20101 where she worked with SASED’s Summer School Program where she discovered her passion for working with younger children.  She was also a private nanny in Chicago and St. Louis before starting at Discovery in September of 2015.  She has her Early Childhood Certificate from Southwestern Illinois College.  Her son is a Discovery student.  She loves working with the little guys and gals in the Red Room!

Ms. Marcy

My early work experience with children includes camp counselor, archery instructor, and park recreationalist.  With a love of science, I completed a bachelor’s in Wildlife & Fisheries in 1994.  After becoming a military wife and mother of two, I have moved eight times!  When my children began elementary school, I volunteered in their Hands on Science program, worked as a substitute teacher, and began a Girl Scout troop.  I have worked in daycare in Virginia, after school programs with school-aged children in Tennessee, and cared for two infants in my home in Arkansas.  With the final move to O’Fallon, I enrolled at SWIC and earned my Associate’s in Early Childhood in December of 2016.  I volunteered for a couple months in the Green Room before becoming a substitute for Discovery School.  Now I am very excited to get to know my Red Room friends and to work with Shanna.  I welcome the chance to teach as well as learn from them!

Please see the list above for important Summer dates!
