Shannon Titshaw

My name is Shannon Titshaw. I grew up in Gadsden, AL and graduated from Emma Sansom High School. I attended Gadsden State Community College, then transferred to Jacksonville State University to complete a degree in Accounting. After working in retail management for 12 years, I decided to pursue a degree in Elementary Education from Athens State University. I later completed my Masters and Educational Specialist degrees from Jacksonville State University in Instructional Leadership. I am currently in my third year as a doctoral student at the University of Alabama working on my Ed.D in Educational Leadership, Policy and Technology Studies.  

I started my teaching career at Crossville High School, where I worked as an EL teacher and high school Varsity Girls' Soccer Coach for three years. Then I taught at Gadsden Job Corps as a Reading and Math teacher, while working as the Men's Head Soccer Coach for four years. I started working for Jackson County Schools in 2016 at Bridgeport Elementary School as the Reading Specialist. This year I was able to transfer closer to home and work at Section High School as the Reading Specialist. 

I reside in Rainsville with my husband, Greg Titshaw, who is also an educator and works as the Technology Coordinator for Fort Payne City Schools. We have three daughters; Kelsey, Riley, and Brooke. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family and working on remodeling projects. Go Lions!!
