Mrs. Shauna Kuester
Hello all! I am a STARS teacher here at Thompson Junior High. I am from Central Illinois where I taught and coached at the junior high level before moving to the Chicago area. I received my associate’s degree at Parkland College while playing softball for the Cobras. In 2009, I then received my bachelor’s degree in Special Education at Illinois State University. In September 2017, I obtained my master's degree in Psychology with a specialization in applied behavior analysis. My passion for education at the junior high level continues to grow. Being a part of student success inspires me to continually improve to assist students to achieve their dreams, become more independent, and reach their full potential.
