Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Shannon Hamm

Thank you for visiting my page! I am so excited to be working with the teachers and students at Irene King. I grew up in Romeoville and attended Irene King, AVM, and I am a graduate of Romeoville High School. I have since moved to Gardner, Illinois with my husband, Matt, and my 5 children. I have a Bachelors Degree in Elementary Education and Special Education from Lewis University, a Masters Degree in Teaching and Leadership from St. Xavier Univerisity, and a CAS in Administration from Lewis University. I am also a National Board Certified teacher. I have absolutely loved my time in the Valley View School District. I have worked as a second grade teacher, first grade teacher, third grade challenge teacher, and second grade challenge teacher. I have also worked in other school districts as an Assistant Principal and Principal. Returning to the classroom and working with students has given me so much joy! This year, I will have the opportunity to work with teachers and students at Irene King as a Teaching and Learning Coach (TLC). I am hoping my page will be a great resource for families and teachers here at Irene King!
