Mr. Gregory Shannon

I have been teaching here in Manville for the past 19 years after graduating from Monmouth University with a Bachelor's Degree in both Elementary Education and Communications. I have been and continue to be quite involved in the school and local community. For those of you new to the district, I am a caring, enthusiastic, structured and caring educator that expects nothing short of a maximum effort from your child at all times. Please know that I do my best to prepare your child to work hard, no matter what the task, accept responsibility for their actions, stop making excuses and achieve a little bit more than they did the year before.  I am very open, honest and easy to talk to, so feel free to e-mail with any inquiries via the district website, while expecting a response withing a few hours in most cases.

In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my three dogs, exercising, listening to music, woodworking and drawing. I look at each year like a fresh start for myself and the students entering my room. Any negative experiences from the year before are left at the door and eveyone begins with a clean slate. My only wish is that that everyone, including myself, has a more successful year we had the year before.
