As this week’s #TeacherTuesday, we’re pleased to feature Shannon Martin, a “caring, accomplished, talented math teacher” who has taught at William Tennent High School since 2000, says a colleague. Shannon manages to “incorporate creative lesson planning while utilizing technology and group involvement,” and tells us that graduates return to talk about “the superior foundation they have received by having Ms. Martin’s math class.”
Shannon’s choice of career was cemented in high school, when her classmates came to her for math help.
“I could explain the concepts in many ways until they each understood it,” she says. “Math has always been like a puzzle to me and I enjoy helping others put the pieces together!”
She is also involved with an after-school robotics club which competes against other schools on a special playing field with robots they have designed, built and programmed. “Shannon believes that every child has the potential to grow and to learn,” her colleague added.
