Ms. Shanna McCartney
Hi! My name is Mrs. McCartney and I teach 2nd Grade at Pleasant Valley Elementary School. I started my career at Pleasant Valley back in 2007, as a Para-Professional Associate. After spending three years assisting in the classroom, I was inspired to go back to school to further my professional growth and development. I graduated from East Stroudsburg University in 2012 with a dual certification in Elementary and Special Education. After a long-term substitute position in 5th grade, I was then hired full-time in 2013. Since then, I have had the opportunity to teach 5th Grade Reading for 2 years and am currently going on my 6th year teaching 2nd Grade.
Teaching is my passion. It is my goal to make a positive difference in the lives of the students I teach every single day. Outside of teaching, I enjoy singing, playing piano, painting, going for walks, swimming, camp fires, and spending lots of time with my friends and family.
