Since I will be your child's teacher this year I would like to introduce myself. My name is Mandy Shanks and this will be my 12th year teaching. I have taught 5th grade, 4th grade, 3rd grade, and this is my first year teaching 2nd grade. I truly enjoy my job and love watching my students learn and grow. On a personal note I will give you a little background on myself. I am married and have three children (Cameryn, Noah, & Joey). I love to vacation and camp with my family. I received my bachelor's degree from Park University and my master's degree in administration from William Woods University. I would love to know more about you too. Please feel free to call (628-4113), email (email@example.com), or stop by our classroom anytime. Please never hesitate if you have any questions or concerns. I am looking forward to a great year!
