Mrs. Shannon Kanavel

Hello, 3rd graders and families!

I'm thrilled to be your teacher for this exciting year of learning and growth! We're going to have a lot of fun together and create a supportive class family where everyone feels valued and encouraged.

A little bit about me: I'm originally from North Carolina, but I spent 10 years living in the Central Valley of California. I have three younger brothers, and this will be my 17th year as a teacher. I spent 14 years as a 4th grade teacher before moving to 3rd grade. 

I maintain a class Facebook page where we can stay connected, share updates, and celebrate our achievements. Feel free to join the group and be a part of our class community. The Facebook page is called Kanavel Class Additionally, I've created a private group specifically for our class this year to enhance communication and collaboration.

Outside of the classroom, I love exploring the beautiful places in North Carolina, especially the Outer Banks. Family time is precious to me, and I enjoy spending it with my husband of 24 years, our 11-year-old son, and our lively German Shepherd, Roxy.

I'm looking forward to getting to know each of you, discovering your unique talents, and embarking on this learning journey together. If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to reach out. Here's to a fantastic school year filled with laughter, curiosity, and success!
