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 Senior at Metamora High School.
This will be my 4th year teaching 8th grade science, STEM, and acting as student council advisor for Metamora Grade School.  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.  All of these teaching experiences have fostered a true passion for science!  I look forward to inspiring my students at MGS to feel the same!!
