Shanna Bradley knows a thing or two about lab rats and lab coats, and she's bringing that knowledge to after eight years in the Milwaukee Public Schools system.
She answered these questions for another edition of Meet the Teacher:
Patch: What school will you teach at, and what is your subject area?
SB: I will be at the high school teaching freshmen biology.
Patch: What is your hometown, and where do you live now?
SB: I was born in Texas, but mostly grew up in West Allis. I live in Milwaukee currently, but looking forward to move in the near future.
Patch: What college did you attend, and what is your prior work experience?
SB: I obtained my bachelor degree in secondary education in the areas of biology and chemistry at the UW-Milwaukee. I received my Masters in Educational Leadership from Marian University. I have worked the last eight years in MPS, with the last six at Rufus King.
Patch: Do you have any connections to Whitnall? Is there a particular reason you wanted to teach in the Whitnall district?
SB: I don’t have any connections to Whitnall, but know that is an excellent school district and just really loved the feel of the administrators and teachers during the interview process.
Patch: Do you have any hobbies you would like to share?
SB: I don’t have much time for personal hobbies, but I am the proud mother of three little boys that keep me very busy.
Patch: Tell us about your favorite summer vacation, either as a child or a grown-up.
SB: My favorite vacation was probably when my husband and I went to Jamaica and got married. Not too many people can say that they have beautiful Caribbean Sea as their backdrop.
