Greetings A. P. Hill Parents! My name is Dr. Shauna Mayo and I am excited to be a part of the A.P. Hill Elementary School family.
Let me begin by sharing a little about myself. I am entering my 13th year as an educator, having been a classroom teacher, Instructional Specialist, and now administrator. My educational journey began at Blanford Elementary School in 2004-2005 school year, transitioning to Robert E. Lee Elementary in 2007 and now A. P. Hill this school year. Prior to becoming an educator, I proudly served in the U. S. Army, retiring in 2004 after 21 years. I am proud to have served my country and I am now proud to serve our students, you, the parents, and the Petersburg community. I earned my Doctorate degree in K-12 School Leadership from Regent University. I also hold a Masters in Elementary Education with a focus on Curriculum and Instruction from Old Dominion University and a Bachelor's in Psychology from the University of Maryland University College.
My philosophy of education is "All students learn differently, but ALL students can learn!" There is nothing that our children cannot do with the proper instruction. Every person is different but that does not stop learning. I get excited when I think about all that our children are doing now, can do and will do in the future. I am a lifelong learner and I want to instill that same desire in the students of A. P. Hill Elementary School. I believe there is nothing too hard for our students. All they need is the opportunity.
Again, I am excited to be a part of the A.P. Hill Elementary School and I look forward to working with all students and parents. Together, we are destined for greatness!! I am #CougarProud
