Corinth Central School District is proud to congratulate Mrs. Shannon Terry on her accomplishment of completing the NYS Master Teacher Program. This consists of NYS teachers who are recognized for their dedication to providing the most innovative STEM education to their students, their commitment to professional growth, and their enthusiasm for sharing their successful practices with colleagues in their schools, districts, and regions.
Shannon Terry earned her BA from the University of Rochester and MS in Education from SUNY Plattsburgh. Mrs. Terry has been in the classroom for 15 years and currently teaches Chemistry, General Science, and Abnormal Psychology at Corinth Central School. She has also taught Living Environment for several years as well as Forensics and Environmental Science. She serves as the Science Department Chair and Co-Advisor to the Science Honor Society. In addition, she has had the opportunity to mentor several new teachers in Corinth as well as many at-risk students. Participating in the “Pre-College Teachers Training Program in Stem Cell Biology & Bioengineering” at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute was the catalyst to her desire to become a NYS Master Teacher. Several of the participants in this program were current NYS Master Teachers who encouraged the participants to apply for the program in order to take advantage of the myriad of professional development opportunities. Outside of the classroom, Mrs. Terry enjoys traveling and spending time with her family. As a NYS Master Teacher, Mrs. Terry looks forward to collaborating with other Master Teachers and bringing techniques and opportunities to her students, colleagues and district.
