Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Shandi Silk

Welcome to my teacher page, Journey Jaguars! My name is Shandi Silk and this is my 12th year teaching 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. I am the sponsor for JMS Student Council.

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 16 year old son, a 10 year old daughter, and two 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. I encourage all students to enter a variety of writing contests. Some may even be published poets before 8th grade!

See you in the 2023-2024 school year, Jaguars!
