My name is Shannon Titshaw. This will be my 15th year as a teacher and my eighth year working for Jackson County School System as an ARI Reading Specialist. I enjoy working with the elementary staff by leading professional development workshops, modeling strategies, or techniques for teachers, and conducting collaborative lessons. My focus is the overall reading program in the school and to serve as an advocate for the literacy program.
I previously worked for two years as the head varsity girl's soccer coach at Crossville High School and four years as the head men's indoor soccer coach at Gadsden Job Corps. I volunteered for nine years as a girls' youth soccer and softball coach for Fort Payne Parks and Recreation. Prior to becoming a teacher, I worked for 10 years in retail management as Assistant Manager and Manager for various stores, which included: Hibbett Sports, Burke's Outlet/Bealls, Remington Outlet, Rutenberg's, Old America Store, and Cape Isle Knitters Outlet.
I reside in Rainsville with my husband, Greg Titshaw, who is also an educator and is the Technology Coordinator for Fort Payne City Schools. We have three daughters that include twins; Kelsey, Riley, and our youngest daughter, Brooke. In my free time I enjoy spending time with my family and working on remodeling projects.
