Teacher Tuesday: Shannon Schram
Our unique hybrid school is stronger with amazing families, students and teachers. Our teachers fill our classroom with fun, knowledge and love. Mrs. Shannon Schram has been teaching at CCA for eight years and has seen her students discover their gifts and talents, learn and laugh and graduate and grow. This year Mrs. Schram teaches Upper School History but has taught a variety of grades and subjects throughout her time at CCA. “I love that I am able to interact with every Upper School student,” she says. Though most of the classes she has taught recently are for Upper School, Mrs. Schram was hired by Mrs. Davis as a preschool teacher! Her first few years at CCA were spent teaching Lower School math and reading. Mrs. Schram has been an OM coach, coached in athletics, and taught other subjects like logic and health.

Shannon is originally from a small area in New York and says she loves Florida but misses the fall weather. “Is there anything better than a fall football game with hot cider and jeans and a big sweatshirt and changing leaves?” She says.
Mrs. Schram loves to interact with her students!
If you pop into Shannon’s class you, will probably find a tin of cinnamon altoids on her desk. One of her favorite ways to connect with her students is through laughter. She smiled remembering a time when she read a variety of cheesy jokes to her students which had her laughing so hard, tears were streaming down her face but none of her students saw the humor. Eventually the whole class was in stitches, not over the jokes, but over Shannon laughing!
Shannon’s passion for her students keeps her coming back to CCA year after year and it’s also what keeps students engaged in her classes.
Our school would not be the same without you, Mrs. Schram!
