Hello and welcome to another great year at Steuart W. Weller Elementary School. My name is Shannon Cornell and I am the Kindergarten ELL teacher. Kindergarten is a very exciting grade level as so much growth and development happens to a child in one year. The children learn so much and so quickly it truly is an amazing experience. This will be my sixth year teaching Kindergarten and I look forward to working with you and your child.
A little about me: I grew up in a rural town outside of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Because of my childhood, I have a passion for the outdoors. I love to bike, hike, camp, and be relax by a lake. I also love to take photos. I can't leave home without my camera. I am married and have 2 sons (one in high school and one in 5th grade). They both attended Steuart Weller which has made this school like a home for me.
After graduating high school, I attended Edinboro University of Pennsylvania and received my Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary/Early Childhood Education with a specialization in mathematics. In addition, I earned my endorsement in English as a Second Language through George Mason University. Recently, I enrolled in American College of Education and attained a Master's Degree in Curriculum and Instruction.
Welcome to the 2013-2014 school year. I am sure it will be a great one!
I am very excited to be a member of Steuart Weller Elementary School. I graduated from Taipei Teacher’s College with a bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education and a Master’s degree in Teaching English as a Second Language from Southern Illinois University at Carbondale. This will be my second year at Steuart Weller and 8th year working as an ELL teacher. At my leisure time, I like to cook and spend time with my family.

Ms. Souada Bailoul comes to us from Morocco, where she received her Master's Degree in Psychology in 1993. She is happy to have realized her dream of being a teacher, the dream that always tickled her emotions. She taught for two years at the Morocco Institute of Technology.She traveled to Saudi Arabia where she taught for one year in middle school.When she came to the United States, she worked with children of all ages for ten years. After this experience she decided to advance her skills so she registered at NVCC to get my CDA(Child development associate degree) and become a professional in the early childhood field. Becoming a teacher has made her realize how truly important her role to the kids is. She understands that their future depends on what we teach them everyday.
