Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Shawn Zirkle
I've called the Lake Norman area home my entire life. I grew up locally and graduated from Bandys High School. I graduated from UNC-Charlotte with a degree in Mathematics Education. It was at UNCC that I met my husband of 29 years, Mark. I did my student teaching at East Lincoln and began my teaching career there immediately following. For twelve years, I taught every math we offered from PreAlgebra to AP Calculus, served as Department Chair, Senior Class Sponsor and Dream Team Sponsor, as well as coached Varsity Volleyball for three years. I took a twelve-year break to raise my three sons, Luke, Ben and Adam, all of whom attended Catawba Springs, East Lincoln Middle and graduated from East Lincoln High School. Even when I was home, it felt like I never left ELHS, between volunteering, substitute teaching and helping fellow moms with Team Mom duties at sporting events. This year will be my sixth year back in the classroom. I am super excited to be "home" at ELHS. When I am not teaching, my hobbies include spending time with my family, reading and floating in the pool.
I am the sponsor of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes here on campus. We meet every Friday morning at 7:15am in the Seminar Room. We help keep the Food Pantry on campus neat and organized and participate in other off-campus events, such as a Feed the Hunger event once in the fall and once in the spring.
