My name is Shannon Feldmeyer. I was born and raised in Boston, MA before joining the Navy; which brought me to Virginia for 10 years, then to Guam for 4, and now to Kodiak. My family has been in Kodiak for 2 years now and we love it! I love traveling and scuba diving; however, with my schedule right now, I would say hobbies include finding time for my 10 and 12-year-old girls and maybe just enough time left for laundry! This class is a piece of the puzzle I am putting together to accomplish my Master’s in Education. I am currently in the secondary teacher placement program where my endorsement is in U.S. and World history. So far, I am really enjoying the program; I am learning at least 10 useful things a day that will help me become an effective teacher. My student teaching is taking place at Kodiak High School, which is home to some of the greatest kids on the planet; I will forever compare high schools to Kodiak High. I envision a smooth, successful year, and I want to absorb as much as I can from the program to help me throughout my career as a teacher. I look forward to working with the professors and students at UAF.
