Mrs. Shannon Mooney
Hello! My name is Shannon Mooney and I am an ENL 6th and 7th Grade Science Teacher at Magee Middle School. I am over the moon to be entering my second year teaching at Magee and my tenth teaching year overall. Previously, I was a first grade special education teacher in Wauconda where I live with my husband, daughter, our pit mix named Kitty, and our cat, Stevie. Prior to that, I spent two years teaching in Chicago at an alternative high school in Humboldt Park. As a parent of a high school freshman, I understand the unique needs of middle school students and I truly enjoy navigating the ever-changing waters of middle school. And as a life-long learner, I especially enjoy sharing my passion for self-improvement through education with my students. At the end of the day, I am successful in my role as an educator if students leave the classroom better equipped to make positive choices and be good humans.
