Mrs. Shannon McGuyer

Hello, I  am the seventh grade English Language Arts teacher at Munford Middle School.  I have taught in both Jefferson and Talladega counties for a total of 20+ years.  I am married with two boys who also attend Munford schools.  I ejoy reading, painting, and spending time with my family.

Why do I enjoy teaching?  Here is my why:

Once a student is in my classroom, they become “my kid” for the rest of their lives.  They are mine; they matter to me.  Each student has the potential for greatness and I am here to help them succeed.  I am here to celebrate their victories and encourage and support them in their struggles.  I believe in my students. The “light bulb” moment,  the look that says, “I didn’t think I could, but I did it!”, the proud fist pump, that’s why I’m here.  I am their cheerleader, because they CAN do this.  I am here to watch their journey as they grow to discover  their own potential for greatness that I knew was there all along.
