Meet Mrs. Luciani

     Hello! I am Mrs. Shannon Luciani, one of the Fourth Grade Teachers at Downey School.

 

Mrs. Luciani


 

 

     I was born in Pittsburgh, PA and I moved to Harrisburg with my husband, John, in 2006. We live in Camp Hill with our cats (Luna and Nimlin).

     I have wanted to be a teacher since I was in third grade, so I went to a high school with a program for future teachers. I attended Indiana University of Pennsylvania for Elementary Education. I did my student teaching in two places. First, I returned to Pittsburgh and taught at Sunnyside Elementary. Then I went to Ireland and taught at St. Oliver Plunkett Primary School in Malahide which is just outside of Dublin.

     I have been teaching in Harrisburg since 2008. I love working with the staff and students here. The best part is being with all of the kids every day. We laugh, we learn, and we grow together.

     In my spare time, I love to read and camp. I also like to bake and decorate cakes. I even made my mother's wedding cake. Plus, I like working on this website for parents and family!
