Hello there! My name is Shannon Jiang and ever since I was a little girl, I wanted to be a teacher. I grew up in a very small country town called Magnolia Springs and moved to Houston in 1998 with my mom and 2 older brothers. I graduated from Memorial High School and attended the University of Houston Downtown. I graduated Summa Cum Laude in 2011 with a Bachelor of Arts.
I began my career in Alief ISD and after having my 2nd child, took a year off. I then had the priveldge of helping take care of my Mom and had 1 more sweet baby before returning to teaching in FBISD. This will be my 3rd year at Leonetti Elementary. Last year, I was so honored to win the Inspire to Impact Lives award for Leonetti and this is my 2nd year as Team Leader.
I am married to my high school sweetheart, Mike Jiang. We have 3 wonderful children, Kai (8), Addison (6), and Isabella (3). Both Kai and Addison currently attend Leonetti and I love getting to bring them to school with me and see them in passing during the day. We moved out to Richmond a few months ago and absolutely love it! I have missed living in the country and enjoy being outside and sharing nature with my kids.
When I am not teaching, I love spending time with my family. I am an active member of Sugar Creek Baptist Church and love to volunteer in their children's ministry. For fun, I love creating things for my classroom, running, teaching at my church, doing mission work, and of course anything with glitter. Teaching truly is my passion!
In my classroom we practice kindness daily and work on being independent thinkers and probelm solvers. We laugh, read alot, have brain breaks, sing, do yoga, and so much more! I am so excited that your child will be attending our school and can not wait to meet them. We will be working together this year to help your sweet child blosom and be ready for 1st grade and beyond! Please always feel free to email with any questions, comments, or concerns. I am looking forward to an amazing year with your awesome child!!! Lets go Lions!!!
