Hello everyone! My name is Shannon McGlynn, and I will be teaching 5th Grade this year. This is my first-year teaching, and I could not be more excited! I attended Appalachian State University in Boone, North Carolina and graduated in May. I made my way to Raleigh this summer and absolutely love it here. I am thrilled to experience my first-year teaching at YMES!
In my free time I love reading, singing, playing the guitar, tending to my plants, and hanging out with my cats, Gus and Luna. I’m almost always listening to Taylor Swift. I’m also a huge coffee drinker, most of the time I have a cup glued to my hand!
I can’t wait to meet each and every one of my students and see them flourish throughout this upcoming school year. I am dedicated to meeting the individual needs of each student and creating a space where they feel welcomed and supported. Once again, I’m so thrilled to begin my teaching journey at YMES!
