Ms. Shannon McAteer

I began teaching art in St. Mary's County, Maryland after obtaining my Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree from East Carolina University in 1997. While teaching art at Esperanza Middle School, I earned my master's degree with an emphasis on curriculum and instruction. I then transferred to my alma mater, Great Mills High School, where I taught both art and theater. Four years later, I developed a full time theater program at Leonardtown High School. In 2006, I moved to Virginia where I taught theater at George Washington Middle School in Alexandria City prior to joining Mayfield Intermediate in 2010 as an art teacher. In 2019, I completed the Educational Leadership Certificate Program at James Madison University and also became certified in PreK-12 English as a Second Language and PreK-12 Health/PE.
