Shawna Kirby

Fourth Grade Teacher


About Shawna

Shawna is part of the fourth grade team at Renaissance Academy Charter School of the Arts!


Shawna grew up in Albion, New York on her family’s farm. She received her Bachelors in Education from SUNY Geneseo and her Masters of Education in Teacher of English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) from Grand Canyon University in Phoenix, Arizona.


Shawna comes back to us from the sunny state of Arizona! She taught in Phoenix for  five years in an alternative setting, teaching grades K-8! Although it was beautiful in Arizona, Shawna missed her family, including her brother and sister-in-law, who recently had a baby, named Aidan.


After joining the Renaissance Academy team, Shawna knew she was in the right place, and is excited to get to know and love each and every student!
