Mrs. Shannon Zaininger

I teach Honors English 1 (8th grade honors language arts) at Murphy Junior High School. I graduated from Illinois Wesleyan University in 2002 with a bachelor’s degree in education and a minor in English. I earned my master’s degree from Lewis University in 2006, and I became a National Board Certified Teacher in 2019.  This is my nineteenth year in the district, and I enjoy sharing my love of reading and writing with students!
