Phenomenal 4th Graders!

Welcome to 4th grade in room 205!  My name is Shauna Hennessy, and I have been teaching at Bethune since 2014.  I have a theatre background with a BFA in Theatre Performance from Viterbo University in La Crosse, WI.  I enjoy implementing creative thinking in the classroom.  Our students are creative and innovative!

I graduated from the University of Minnesota with my Master's in Education.  I am driven to empower young people through creative thiking, problem-solving, exploration, and project-based learning.  It is my belief that all learners have the capacity to grow and shine in their own unique way; we all bring something to our Team!

My passions for teaching are complimented by my arts background, and my love for teaching reading & writing.  As a teacher I know I am always learning and I love the journey we take each year in the classroom together.

Please contact me with any questions at any time!  I look forward to working and learning with your student this year.
