TEAM MEMBER BIO
Hi! I am Shannon Rabon and I love teaching students to be creative and independent thinkers. Inspired Virtual is an ideal platform for teaching according to that philosophy. I am a former public-school Spanish and ESL teacher. I have been homeschooling my own children (ages 19, 17, 14 and 12) for the past 8 years and plan to graduate my youngest in 6 years. With my oldest daughter I did extensive research on how to qualify for and win scholarships.
My passions include history, literature, and the Spanish language. I love to study and watch anything about history. My favorite eras of study are the Renaissance, America 1620-1830, and the 20th century. I read widely, but I love to focus on young adult books and the lessons that students can learn from those novels. I have taught literature classes in the public school, to homeschool groups, and in online settings. I feel that students can learn so many lessons from novels of classic literature, historical fiction, biographies, and fantasy. In my literature classes I usually include works of literature from many different genres and life experiences. I believe that learning can be fun and inspiring! I teach with as many games and deep questions as possible. I want to students to think deeply, be inquisitive, and have a great time doing it!
Join me for literature and history classes that always combine depth and fun for a memorable experience for your student. When I am not teaching you will find me baking, reading a book, hanging out with my family, or walking my dogs. I live in beautiful South Carolina where the beach or the mountains are just a couple of hours away.
