Hello and welcome to 4th grade! I am so excited to get to know you and to embark on this adventure together. I grew up in New York and have been living in North Carolina for nearly a decade. My husband and I love it here! We have two daughters who are still very little. Their names are Remi and Abbey. We also have a dog named Egg and two cats. When I’m not teaching, I am probably reading, hiking, or believe it or not, playing video games!

OCE is one of the most welcoming places I have ever walked into, and I cannot wait to welcome your student to 4th grade! I graduated from NC State with a degree in Elementary Education and also earned a horticultural certificate. I live in Cary with my husband, Ryan, our golden retriever named June, and our Siberian cat named Albus (Dumbledore!). Outside of school, I love to read books, spend time with my church family, travel, garden, and be outside!  I consider it the greatest honor to be your child's teacher and can't wait to grow together over the year!

My name is Shannon Garrison and I am thrilled to be joining the Olive Chapel Elementary family this school year!  I've taught for 18 years in WCPSS at a traditional school and am excited for the new year-round schedule change.  I am a true Carolina girl and have lived in NC my whole life. I graduated from Appalachian State and NC State.  I live in Holly Springs and have a sweet dog named Charlie who is 1 year old.  I love to be outside, hanging out at a lake or beach, walking my dog or spending time with family and friends.  I enjoy reading, shopping and I love fashion! I'm looking forward to a great school year together in 4th grade.

I am honored to be your homeroom teacher. I will also be teaching English Language Arts, partnering with Mr. Brown, who will be teaching Math & Science. This year is going to be full of fun and lots of learning! I look forward to working together to help 4th graders master all of the skills needed to be successful this year and in the future! I have been teaching for 18 years. This is my 1st year at Olive Chapel Elementary. Previously, I taught 1st, 4th, and 5th for the last 10 years. I have a Master’s Degree in Literacy from UNCG and have been Nationally Board Certified since 2015.

Outside of school, I live on the northeast side of Raleigh with a roommate who is in dental hygiene school. I visit my parents and my sister’s family often, who live in Wilmington and Myrtle Beach. I enjoy yoga, running, & coffee! I have visited over 14 countries, but have yet to step foot on the continents of Africa or Antarctica. I hope to see wild penguins one day; they are my favorite animal! I have been vegetarian for about 15 years and I love trying tasty new foods from different cultures. This year is going to be fantastic! I can’t wait to meet you all!

Hi I am Ms. Parker and I am thrilled to be a part of the OCE family! I know this year will be a great year of us growing and learning together. Before I become a teacher I was a Scientist at Duke University, GO Blue Devils! I have a degree in Biology from the University of North Carolina Wilmington and my teachers certification from North Carolina Central University. I've worked with the Engineering department of North Carolina State University for the past 4 summers for Engineering camp, so I love ALL STEAM subjects! I absolutely love to travel and learn about new cultures, in fact I lived and taught in Shanghai, China this past school year. I also love being outside, working out, dancing, listening to music, comedy and eating all kinds of foods!  You will have to share with me what you love to do outside of school too. We are going to have a fun year of learning hard things and I am looking forward to every minute of it.
