Mrs. Shannan Harper

I am so excited to learn and grow with your child this year. This is my 6th year in education and I LOVE it more and more each day!

I am excited to be at Maypearl High School as the Life Skills Special Education teacher! This will be my 6th year to teach; my 2nd in Maypearl.  I worked in the medical field for 14yrs before going back to school for my teaching degree. I absolutely love teaching and growing with students each year; it is truly my “dream job” and I am blessed to have the opportunity!  

In my room this year, students can look forward to a challenging, thought-provoking, inspiring and fun curriculum. Our main focus this year will be leadership, social skills, self control and accountability…. and of course; academics. Technology will be a key tool for us as I personally love technology and am aware that our students are becoming more and more in tune with technology, interactive programs and games so….. We are looking more into online options for some of our academics this year. Our classroom is equipped with some FLEXIBLE SEATING options; and students may choose what works best for them as long as it is used properly (self control and accountability). I am super excited about student growth and success this year!!!

I have a wonderful and supportive husband of 24yrs, Lonnie, and 2 amazing children--a son, Sterling, who has gifted me a beautiful daughter-in-law last year, Kristian, and a daughter, Courtney, who is starting SFA this Fall.
