Welcome to the 5th grade! I would like to express my excitement about working with your child this year. I believe that all students can learn and grow through hard work and effort. Together we can make this an awesome year for your child! I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE teaching Language Arts (reading, writing, spelling, & English). These happened to be my favorite subjects in elementary school!
I invite you to call the school office (601-859-2743) or write a quick note if you ever have a question or a concern. My planning time is each day from 1:45-2:30.
About the Teacher
Hello! My name is Shannon Oswalt. (The kids call me "Mrs. O." for short!) I graduated from Mississippi University for Women in 1996 with a Bachelor's degree in elementary education. I returned to school a few years later and earned my Masters degree from Mississippi State University in Instructional Technology in 2003. This is my 19th year of teaching with 13 of those being here at Luther Branson. I am married with two children. My son, Tucker, is a 12th grader at Germantown High School, and my daughter, Zoe, is a 7th grader at Germantown Middle. I have 2 miniature daschunds (Ozzy and Harleigh) who drive me crazy with all their barking! I also have a cat named "Crazy Daisy." I love reading, shopping, traveling, and "cruising" Facebook.
