Ms. Shannon Tobin

Hello! I'm Ms. Tobin


Welcome to 1st grade at Hodgkins!

This is my 15th year at Hodgkins and my 20th year teaching. I spent many years teaching 6th, 4th, and then 5th grades. For the past 3 years, I taught 2nd grade. This year, I am lucky to teach 1st grade, which ironically was my "dream grade" after college. I'm thrilled to be working with 1st graders this year!

I am married and have a 2nd grade daughter, Gabby. We have a Goldendoodle named Maggie and a crazy cat named Dolly. We live in Elmhurst.  I love to read, do yoga, take walks, travel, hang out on my deck with family and friends, ride bikes, and watch my daugher's swim meets and soccer games.
