Welcome to Mrs. Poor Bear's 5th Grade and MS Band website!
My Class Schedule
Mrs. Shannon Poor Bear is in her seventh year of teaching music, and fifth year as the Band Director at GLR! Her most important goal is to bring a love and appreciation of music into the classroom, as well as the school and community.
Mrs. Poor Bear grew up in Central Nebraska and graduated from Burwell Jr. - Sr. High School in Burwell, Nebraska. She attended the University of Sioux Falls as a Music Education Major, and graduated with a Bachelor's Degree in Music Education in December 2009. She is currently working on her Masters degree in Music Education online from Kent State University.
Her first teaching job was a 5-12 Band Teacher position in Wagner, South Dakota. She worked with 5th and 6th grade concert band, 7th and 8th grade concert band, high school concert band, jazz band, pep band, and marching band. She also assisted in the elementary general music classroom throughout her two years at Wagner.
In addition to keeping busy with music activities, Mrs. Poor Bear enjoys spending time with her husband and daughter, reading, watching movies and favorite tv shows, taking walks, traveling, and being with family and friends.
