Hello My Name Is...

Ms. Shaner

Ms. Shaner - 4/5 Teacher

I am excited to be in my sixth year teaching for the Beaufort County School District. I have experience teaching 2nd, 3rd, and 5th grade here at Red Cedar. I am extremely excited to be teaching 4th grade this year. I look forward to this new and exciting experience.

My path into teaching was not direct. I earned my Bachelors degree in Business Marketing from Penn State University. I worked as a Merchandise Buyer and Planner in the fashion and sporting goods industries. Twelve years after graduating from college, I decided to follow a passion and earn my Master’s degree in Elementary Education from the University of Phoenix. I consider myself a life-long learner. I hope to motivate students to continually wonder and question the world around them.

This year I will be teaching GT ELA and GT Math. I am endorsed to teach Gifted and Talented students and will work with GT and High Achieving Math and ELA learners.

  My husband, Brian and I live in Bluffton with our two young children, and our wildly energetic pup, Bowie. We are originally from the Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania area (I’m a HUGE Steelers fan), but are thrilled to call this beautiful community our home for the past 8 years.
