Degrees and Certifications:

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!
