Get to Know Shelby Shannon
TCS families may know Shelby Shannon as a cheerful substitute teacher who assisted in our classrooms last year. This year, she has moved into a bigger role: Assistant to the Academic Office. “In my new role, I assist the academic directors and curriculum specialist with many administrative tasks, as well as help the teachers with anything they need,” she says. “They are all very busy in their roles and I am happy to be able to take on a lot of the day-to-day tasks that help to make the school day run smoothly.”
“I enjoy working at TCS,” she says. “It is fun to get to know the children. They are so joyful and I enjoy seeing their smiles throughout the day.”
Shelby grew up in Orlando with her two younger sisters. “A fun fact about me is that my family owns a restaurant here in town called Shannon’s Café,” she says. “My fiance, Nathan Dunlap, graduated from TCS in 2008. We met at our church where his mom runs the children’s ministries. His son, who is 4, will be a TCS Lion next year! We love to go to Disney together. I also love fishing and going to the beach,” she says.
Shelby shares her favorite Bible verse: The Lord will fight for you; you need only to be still. – Exodus 14:14
