About The Teacher
My name is Shannon McClure and I live in Germantown Hills with my husband Bill and our two sons Keaton and Logan. Bill is an accountant working for Caterpillar, Keaton is a college student at the University of Illinois and Logan is a Junior at Metamora High School.
This will be my 3rd year teaching 7th and 8th grade science at MGS. I graduated from Illinois State University majoring in Biology and minoring in Psychology. I later acquired a middle school endorsement. My first year of teaching was at Hartsburg/Emden. I taught several science classes a semester due to the small size of the school. These classes consisted of 7th and 8th grade Science, Botany/Zoology, Biology II/Ecology, Genetics/Chemistry, and General Science. The students ranged in age from 7th graders all the way to seniors in high school. I later hired on at Morton High School. While at Morton, I had the pleasure of teaching Biology,Chemistry, Earth's Physical Properties, and Biological Sciences and Agriculture. I truly love science and look forward to inspiring my students at MGS to feel the same!!
