Mrs. Shankster's DMS STEM Class
Welcome to Mrs. Shankster's Page!
I teach a 5th/6th grade self contained advanced STEM class at Durand Middle School. This is my 12th year teaching in the district and my 11th at DMS. Teaching is my passion and I look forward to sharing this school year with you. I strive to teach students in an authentic, creative, and student driven environment. As a teacher, I meet state curriculum objectives for all students while nurturing the whole child. I believe all students can and will learn in if their needs are met in and out of school. A positive and mutually respectful relationship between parents, students, and teachers will assist in reaching the goals we set together. Please feel free to contact me at any time with questions, suggestions, or concerns.
