My name is Shonna Gaul and this is my first year teaching fifth grade at BFCCPS. I am a passionate supporter of BFCCPS and have previously worked as a first grade classroom assistant and substitute teacher. These experiences afforded me the opportunity to work in each of the K-8 grade levels.

I completed my undergraduate studies at Northeastern University and I obtained a Master's degree in Education from Lesley University. My approach to teaching begins by developing strong partnerships and communication with parents, while working to understand and support the unique learning styles and challenges of each student. I will strive to foster a growth mindset in my classroom and set the tone that high achievement comes within a learning environment that has high expectations.
