She has worked in various roles in public and non-public school settings, including principal, program and intervention specialist, peer mediation teacher and classroom teacher. Shauna worked as the PBIS coordinator in one of the largest school districts in the state of Maryland. Because of her commitment to this initiative, she was invited to join the Maryland PBIS State Leadership Team where she served as a state level trainer. Shauna earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Community Health Education from Morgan State University of Baltimore and a Masters of Education from Bowie State University. She also completed her educational administration certification at McDaniel College. 3. Sitting in the front of the class results in higher grades regardless of age or whether the seating is assigned or selected by the student.
