Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Shannon Holcomb


Family is very important to me. Roe and I have four amazing children. Jordan is currently attending college for a degree in graphic design. He enjoys sports and photography.  Dillon is in 12th grade. His plans to graduate early and join the military. Landon is in 10th grade. He plays soccer. His favorite players are Ronaldo and Messi. Mya is our baby girl. She is 4 years old. Her official birthday is July 3rd, two minutes before midnight! She loves gymnastics and ballet. When we are not at a sporting event, we can usually be found snuggled up watching movies or at the beach.


I graduated from the University of North Carolina at Wilmington. I currently hold a B.A. in Elementary Education with a concentration in Behavioral Studies.


While I hold degrees, certifications, and professional experience in many areas, I truly feel that it is my calling to serve in the school setting. I have not found anything more rewarding than to watch students grow academically, socially, and emotionally, and to know that I have been a part of that process. I have experience in the general education classroom, E.C. classroom, and resource setting.

Personal Goal:

My goal in life is to be a life-long learner. I truly believe that we are all capable of learning something new every day.

Teaching Philosophy:

I believe that all children can learn. It is my job to meet them where they are, discover their interests/talents/abilities, and use that knowledge to teach in a way that not only helps them be successful but to develop a love for learning. Cross-curricular connections should be made whenever possible. Learning should be fun! I want each student to become a life-long learner. Teaching is more than academics. It is also the social and emotional development of each child. The classroom should be a safe place for all students to express themselves while learning about others. When students leave my classroom, it is my goal that they not only master the academic content but that they are critical thinkers and problem-solvers, they are creative and curious, they become team players who can work well with others even if they have different interests and opinions, and they are ready to become a global citizen who appreciates the beauty of the diversity in our ever-changing world.
