Ms. Shandi N Silk
Welcome to my teacher page! My name is Shandi Silk and this is my 8th year teaching 7th grade English Language Arts. 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. During my time at SGMS, I served as team leader, Student Council Advisor, and coordinated building and grade level wide events, such as the spring Talent Showcase. 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, cat, and bearded dragon!
I love watching students grow as readers and writers. A firm belief of mine is that everyone is a reader--they just haven't found the right book yet! The same holds true for writing. I encourage all students to enter a variety of writing contests and some may even be published poets before 8th grade!
I look forward to having an engaging and exciting 2019-2020 school year!
