Ms. Shannon Goings
This will be my first-year teaching at Baldwin and I am delighted to be part of the 2020-2021 special education team. I look forward to teaching our third and fourth graders. I was born, raised, and educated in Northern Virginia. I am a veteran of the United States Navy who traveled overseas frequently. Also, I love learning and have over sixteen years of experience working in the public education field. I have worked as a substitute teacher, instructional assistant, job coach, and behavior technician in both Prince William County Schools and Sarasota County Schools in Florida. After living in Florida for over a decade, I have decided to return to my family, friends, and the best place to go hiking and observe the change of seasons. Other things that make me smile are a good book, animals (especially frogs), robots, and/or a funny joke.
My passion has always been to work with students of all ages and talents. It is rewarding to see kids exploring, having fun, showing empathy towards others, working hard, being trustworthy, respectful, and finding a love for learning. Kids make me laugh with the little things they do and say as they learn and grow. That’s what makes me want to continue teaching. We are going to learn so many great things this year, and I am looking forward to every minute of it!
