I am so excited to be the new Gifted and Talented teacher at Mountain Vista Elementary.I would like to take this time to introduce myself. My name is Shannon Randels. I was born and raised here in Colorado and attended Colorado State University in Ft. Collins where I studied Human Development and Family Studies. I continued my education at the University of Colorado in Denver and earned my Master’s degree in Curriculum and Instruction in 2005, and later got my endorsement in Gifted Education. This is my fifteenth year of teaching. I have experience teaching kindergarten, first, second and third grade, with many of those years being a gifted cluster teacher.
My husband Jason and I are the proud parents of two boys; little Owen is a proud and eager incoming kindie and our older son Jack will be a fifth grader here at Mountain Vista this year. As you know, parenthood is a precious gift and it is a dream realized for me. Aside from being a mom, I enjoy camping, going to concerts, compulsively reading good books, taking pictures, baking, running, and having family dance parties in the kitchen.
I am so looking forward to getting to know you and your kiddos this year! It is an honor to share this chapter in your child’s educational journey. Should you have any questions, please don't hesitate to email me.
