Shaunna Fortier: 5th Grade Math & Social Studies Teacher

About Me

Hi! I was born and raised in Franklin County, Tennessee. I graduated from Tennessee Tech University with a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education. This is my second year teaching, and I am thrilled to be here at Decherd Elementary. I am so excited to see what this year has in store!

In My Classroom...

Each and every student is loved, welcomed, and valued. I believe that, as a teacher, it is my job to make learning as fun, hands-on, and meaningful as possible. I hope to instill a love for learning in all students, while providing them with a safe and compassionate environment.
