My name is Shannon Deskins. I have a BA in Elementary Education and a Masters in Professional Development. This will be my tenth-year teaching first grade at Cortina. Cortina has been home to my husband, Casey and I, for about 10 years. We have been married for 25 years and have been blessed with three wonderful boys ages 18, 16, and 13 years old. We are a very active family who love sports, hiking, and camping. We are often riding our bikes or jogging throughout the community.
