  • All About Me

    Name: Ms. Shannon Harder

    I have been teaching in Rush-Henrietta since 1997.This is the start of my 21st year! I have always worked in Special Education although, through the years my positions have included being a: teacher of children in a Self-Contained setting, a teacher in a Blended setting, a Special Education Consultant Teacher, a Traveling Special Education Consultant Teacher and I have come full circle back to the classroom! I will be teaching students in a Life Skills 4-6 class this school year. I have taught Summer School at the High School setting as well as SMART at the elementary levels.

    I am married and have 2 children. We have two rescued dogs, Harper & Hash. I love Rush Henrietta! My husband and I are proud graduates of the district and our children attend RH schools.

    I am a proud graduate of Bowling Green State University, Bowling Green, Ohio. Where I earned my BS in Education with a specialty in Deaf and Hard of Hearing. I earned my Masters Degree in Liberal Studies from Nazareth College.

    I am very active in the community! We attend local sports: Red Wings games & RH Football. I participate in the Light The Night Walk (September), The Making Strides for Breast Cancer Walk (September/October), Anna's Wish Events and a few other community events. I am a very active member of my children's PTO!

    I love history and visiting historical landmarks. With my children I create wonderful ways to integrate history into their lives. We complete scavenger hunts in local cemeteries as a way to promote active learning. We visits local historical places that provide a connection to their daily lives.

    I enjoy photography and try to take pictures everywhere we go!

    I enjoy learning new things as it helps me remain grounded and remind me of how it feels to learn new things.

    We are a ClassDojo classroom! I look forward to sharing this with you as we start the new school year.

    Here's hoping to a successful year! Please feel free to contact me at any time.
