Degrees and Certifications:
Hello there! My name is Hannah Shaw and I am a Kindergarten teacher here at Midland! I am a Midwest girl, growing up in Iowa and Minnesota, and my family still lives in the Midwest. I graduated from high school in Iowa, played a year of basketball at a college in Michigan, and then ended up transferring to and graduating from the University of Northern Iowa with a double bachelor's degree in Elementary Education and Early Childhood!
Right out of college, I took a job in Topeka, Kansas and taught Kindergarten for 5 years there. Then, my cousin set me up with a guy named Danny Shaw, and now I have been married to Danny for almost 7 years and have taught at Midland for 8 years already! Time flies!
Kindergarten is my true passion and I know that it is my calling in life. Watching young people inquire about their world, get excited about learning new things, and come out of their shell in a kind and respectful way is the reason I love teaching!
If I'm not teaching , you might find me fishing with my husband, playing music, watching the Broncos, or hanging out with my friends! A highlight of this year will be when we FINALLY get to adopt our foster daughter of almost 3 years! We are so excited! I truly enjoy life and the wonderful family and friends I have in it! I am so glad I get to work at Midland! It's a wonderful place!
