Degrees and Certifications:
Hello, my name is Shalana Pennix. I am very excited to be a part of the Legacy Elementary family. I was born and raised in Thomasville, North Carolina. I have been teaching special education for 10 years. I received my bachelor’s degree from Pfeiffer University in Human Services, as well as a bachelor’s degree from High Point University in Special Education. I then received my Master of Arts degree in Special education from George Mason University. While there I really enjoyed learning more about children with Autism and received a certificate in Applied Behavior Analysis.
When I’m not teaching I enjoy spending quality time with my husband and our three children. I also enjoy working with teenage girls in my church, traveling to NC to visit my family, and dancing.
After taking a couple of years off work and being a stay at home mom, I am very excited about starting my journey back in the classroom. My goals are to make learning FUN and allow students the opportunity to learn in a variety of ways. I know this will be a fun and exciting school year and I look forward to getting to know each of your children.
