Teachers College alum uses ASU in 6th-grade classroom

Shannon Woodard (foreground) is using ASU facts and figures, mascot Sparky, the university fight song and more to teach lessons to her sixth-graders at Palomino Intermediate.


This is cool, using ASU and Sparky in a sixth-grade classroom to help students improve and stay engaged over the course of lessons, assignments and activities.

It’s the brainchild of Shannon Woodard, a 2007 graduate of the College of Teacher Education and Leadership, now the Mary Lou Fulton Teachers College.  Woodard is a sixth grade teacher at Palomino Intermediate School in Paradise Valley and is bringing her alma mater into the classroom as a learning tool.  From posters to the fight song, and from Sparky to wardrobe, Woodard’s class of 34 students is going Maroon and Gold as they focus on their studies and the importance of a college education — at ASU, of course!
