    About The Teacher

    Welcome to the Wonderful World of Second Grade!

    My name is Shannon Haskin and I am very excited to kick off the 2019-2020 school year here at Kyrene de la Esperanza! Your child is a valued addition to our community of learners, cooperating and collaborating with his or her peers, and I am dedicated to making 2nd grade a positive, successful experience for your child. Let me begin by telling you about my background. I was born and raised in Pickerington, Ohio and moved to Arizona with my family several years ago. I am married and have a beautiful daughter!  In addition, I also have a lovable, but high maintenance Havanese named Lilli. She is a lot of fun! I graduated from The Ohio State University with a B.S. in Elementary Education, and completed my Masters degree through Northern Arizona University.

    This will be my 26th year of teaching, and I feel honored to be working with you and your child this year. Your child’s success is a priority. My job as an educator is to create a nurturing, comfortable, and productive environment where your child is safe and provide a place where they feel they can take risks. My goal is to help your child develop a love for learning that will be a foundation for them in the years to come. I plan to achieve this goal by maintaining a balance of challenging the children, while providing opportunities for success. I make learning fun by keeping the day active.

    My primary concern is the overall well-being of your child. Your support in this endeavor is always appreciated. Together, we can help your child have a successful 2nd grade year. I look forward to a strong partnership!
