Shannon Pritchett has taught Kindergarten in Catholic Schools for 27 years - the last 15 at St. Patrick Catholic School. Before moving to Louisville, Mrs. Pritchett taught in Nashville and Memphis, TN. Mrs. Pritchett says, “teaching is my passion, my love and my calling. I truly love what I do! Teaching is filled with endless rewards. My classroom is a positive, loving classroom where children feel comfortable to discover, explore and learn about God, His great love and awesome creation”.
My amazing family and I are active members of St. Patrick Catholic Community. All three of our children graduated from St. Patrick Catholic School. Our oldest plays baseball for Bellarmine University, our middle son is a Freshman at Western Kentucky University and our youngest is a senior at Assumption and loves Art. Our lives revolve around their sports and I love being a "Sport's Mom".
Mrs. Pritchett attended St. Louis University, received my teaching degree from Middle Tennessee State University and a Masters in Education from Indiana University Southeast. Mrs. Pritchett has a Master Catechist Certification from University of Dayton.
