2017 - 2018 School Year
Hello Henry County Families and Students!
I am Shawna Fox, mother of five children, a wife, grandmother, daughter, sister, friend, teacher, literacy specilist, and reading interventionist for Henry County Middle School.
I am a native of East Bank, WV (near Charleston, WV) but have lived in Kentucky since 1996. I started my journey into education at Alice Lloyd College, in Pippa Passes, KY in 1996. I attended at ALC all four years to earn my undergraduate degree in Elementary Education. After graduation I wanted to stay in Kentucky, so I began applying across the state for open elementary positions. I accepted a position at Overdale Elementary in Bullitt County, and taught 3rd grade there for two years. During that time, I began working on my Master's degree through the University of Louisville. After teaching two years, I then moved on to Henry County, KY, teaching 3rd and 4th grade over the course of 8 years at NCES. I finished my master's program in literacy with an endorsement in writing. While working at New Castle Elementary I began the process of National Board Certification in 2006, and became nationally certified to teach early to middle childhood Literacy: Reading and Language Arts. And that's the certification that led me to the middle school.
My vision for students, "I want to provide a caring place where my students can feel they make a contribution and are valued as individuals who will be leaders of their own success in life."
My pledge to your child is to encourage their success, monitor their progress, and help them move forward! I am the one who will treat your children fair and equitably, regardless of background and abilities, holding high expections for all! Thank you for sharing your children with me.
