Greetings, my name is Shannon Sommer. I am new to teaching and to Texas. Our family relocated from Tucson, Arizona to Houston, Texas in 2016. I spent the last decade accumulating certifications within a very specialized aspect of the investment industry. Unfortunately, although Houston is great city filled with many opportunities, the position I had spent my entire adult career advancing in was just simply not relevant here. I was offered an opportunity to substitute teach and instantly fell in love with teaching- especially at the mid level! I applied to the Master’s program at SFA this past spring and am hoping to teach mid-level social studies within the next year. When I am not substitute teaching or working on my classwork, you can bet we're at a ball field somewhere. Both our boys play select ball, my husband coaches, we love college, minor league and of course our hometown stros. Go stros! I am also a life-long accomplished equestrian.
