Mrs. Shaunna Ondrias
Welcome! We did it! We survived the 2020-2021 School Year. That was my last year to teach and what an adventure it was! Moving forward, I am pursuing a second degree in School Psychology and taking the year off to complete the required practicum hours each week. I hope to be hired back into N.E.I.S.D. in the future. In the meantime, I will be around to help with tutoring at Northern Hills when I can as I complete my program.
I taught 1st Grade for 6 years and have been blessed to be part of the Northern Hills Family for the last 15 years. This is absolutely my favorite age because we embark on the important journey of learning to be life-long readers and writers. I am passionate about helping every child become a confident reader who enjoys sitting down with a good book. To make this happen, first graders need to be exposed to thousands of books and spend time reading every day at school and at home.
I also worked as a 2nd grade teacher and a special education teacher. As a special education teacher, I worked alongside 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade teachers and made so many friends on this campus.
It has been a joy to work along wonderful families and teachers for all these years. Although I am saying good bye for now, I hope to see Northern Hills faces around the district in the future.
