Mrs. Shandi Silk

Welcome to my teacher page, Journey Jaguars! My name is Shandi Silk and this is my 13th year teaching English Language Arts. In addition to teaching Honors ELA 8 and ELA 8, I am the English Language Arts Department Lead and the Student Council Sponsor. 

I hail from York, PA and have a bachelors degree in Secondary Education/English and a masters degree in Educational Leadership. Before relocating to Madison City Schools, I taught 7th grade ELA at Spring Grove Area Middle School in Spring Grove, PA. Prior to teaching, I served in the United States Navy as an Electronics Technician, Petty Officer Third Class. In my spare time, I enjoy traveling, reading, writing, spending time with my family and pets. I am the proud parent of a high school senior, sixth grader, and three-year-old twin girls. 

I love watching students grow as readers and writers. I firmly believe every child is a reader--they just haven't found the right book. The same holds true for writing. Over the course of the school year, students will have ample opportunities to enter writing contests and read challenging texts! For your convenience, the MCS Summer Reading Website is linked below this bio.

Enjoy your summer, and I will see you in the 2024-2025 school year!

Go, Jags!
