Degrees and Certifications:
My name is Shannon McFate and I am excited to continue my journey at Oakdale STEAM Elementary School! I am new to Rock Hill, but this is my 7th year working as a library-media specialist. Originally from southwestern Pennsylvania, I earned a Bachelor's in Elementary Education at California University of Pennsylvania and Master's in Library and Information Science at the University of Pittsburgh.
As you might expect, one of my favorite things to do in my free time is reading! My family developed a love of books in me from a young age, and I do all I can to foster and share this love with all the students at Oakdale. Some of my other interests include playing games, supporting Pittsburgh sports teams, traveling, and visiting friends and family all across the country. This includes my mom near Pittsburgh, PA; my dad and step-mom in Jacksonville, FL; and my sister and brother-in-law in Denver, CO.
