Mrs. Ar'Tika Shannon

Hi! My name is Ar'Tika Shannon and I teach the 3rd, 4th, & 5th grade Learning Connections class. I am so excited to be a part of YRES and teaching in this classroom. I am a passionate teacher and person. I absolutely love working with ALL children, but Autism holds a special place in my heart. I have been doing it for half of my life! It brings me so much joy!
When I'm not at school, I love spending time with my daughter and husband. We love playing in the yard, taking walks, and reading. We live in the small town of Heath Springs, outside of Lancaster. We are from this area and moved back last year after 10 years in Rock Hill. 
I am excited for my third year of teaching and can't wait to see what this year has in store for my students and me!
