Meet Mrs. Palichuk
My name is Shannon Palichuk. I attended Indiana University Northwest where I earned my Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education. I also earned endorsements in Mildly Mentally Disabled and Learning Disabilities. In 2013, I earned my Master's Degree in Education from Indiana Wesleyan University! This is my 21st year teaching in Hobart, and I just love it! I taught third grade for seven years, and this is my 14th year teaching second grade.
My husband and I began dating while we were in high school! We were married in 1998, and decided that Hobart would be a wonderful place to raise a family. We have two children. Our daughter, Madeline, is nineteen years old. She's a sophomore at Purdue University Northwest in Hammond. She's studying to become a nurse. This summer she worked as a lifeguard at the Hobart Pool. Our son, Jackson, is seventeen years old, and he's a senior at Hobart High School. Jackson was a lifeguard at the Hobart Pool, too! Jackson plays soccer year-round. He's currently playing soccer for the Brickies! We also have a black lab named Wrigley and a yellow lab pup named Murphy!
My family and I had a great summer! I love to organize, so I spent lots of times organizing the things I tend to neglect during the school year! I also read a few books, which is something I LOVE to do! We did make some time to visit friends at Lake Wawasee, and we spent a lot time relaxing in our pool.
I can't wait to learn all about my students! I'm looking forward to a great year!
