Miss Shaoul's Classroom Website

Shoshanna Shaoul
  • Hello!  My name is Shoshanna Shaoul and I have been teaching eighth grade English in District 112 since 2014.  I grew up in Highland Park and have enjoyed returning to such a supportive and motivated community as a teacher.  In addition to teaching English, I also have my Masters in Reading and believe that the development literacy skills will help students in all areas of their academic life.  As my students navigate the middle school world, I try to teach them the importance of self-advocacy and metacognition.  Understanding the process of learning and how they, as individuals, best learn, will only help create a sense of intrinsic motivation in the classroom.   I strive to create an environment that is student-driven and where students feel comfortable and safe to take ownership of their own learning.
