Mrs. Shannon Bono
Hello River Grove families! My name is Shannon Bono and I am the reading specialist at River Grove School. I am excited to begin my seventh year at RGS this year as well as my 26th year of teaching! I have taught in school districts in both Illinois and in my home state of Wisconsin. The majority of my career has been spent as a reading specialist, which is a job I love to do! It is my passion to help students develop the reading strategies and skills they need to be independent readers. I also enjoy promoting the love of reading through our Family Literacy Nights here at RGS.
I completed my BS in Elementary Education at Carroll University in Waukesha, Wisconsin and my Masters in Elementary Education/Reading at Viterbo University in LaCrosse, Wisconsin. I also earned an ESL endorsement from National Louis University,
When I am not teaching, I enjoy spending time with my husband and son. We enjoy reading, traveling to Wisconsin, and family movie nights.
Please feel free to contact me throughout the school year either by e-mail or on Bloomz, our district communication app. I am excited to work with your students and I am sure it is going to be a great school year!
