My name is Shana Henson and I am so excited to be teaching Special Education at Oconee Elementary School! I began my career as a paraprofessional in 2002 and completed my Masters of Education with a degree in Special Education and Multiple Disabilities at Georgia State University. My teaching philosophy is that all students hold great potential and I adore figuring out how to help each individual achieve at their highest level.
My family and I live in Bishop, GA. My husband, Dave, and I have two wonderful children who attend Oconee County Schools. We are thrilled that I will now be teaching where our kids go to school and look forward to becoming more immersed in the Oconee Family.
In addition to teaching, I love the beach, reading, spending time with friends and family, jewelry making, hiking and am always up for a travel adventure!
I am looking forward to a fantastic year!
