• A special message from our principal, Steven Pesek:

    I am so excited to be the principal of Shannon Elementary for the 2018-2019 school year.  I look forward to getting to know you and your children. As we wind up this year I wanted to introduce myself and tell you a little more about me.

    I was born in Shiner, Texas, but moved to Fredericksburg, Texas when I was four years old.  My father was a middle school principal and my mother was a middle school math teacher.  I graduated from Southwest Texas University (Texas State University) with a Math and Kinesiology degree and then worked in a couple districts in the  Hill Country area until I met my wife Liz, who is a Rockwall High School alumnus.

    We married and moved to Rockwall in 2006 where I started to teaching and coaching at Rockwall Heath High School. While working at RHHS, I received my Masters in Educational Administration from Lamar University and started my administrative career.  This is also where I was able to start moving through the district working with several of our amazing leaders.  I worked at Amy Parks Elementary as an assistant principal, Cain Middle School as an assistant principal, and most recently, at Rockwall Heath High school as an Associate Principal.

    As I mentioned, I am married to an amazing woman, Liz, and  we have two beautiful girls.  Grace will be a third grader at Springer Elementary, where my wife teaches kindergarten. Maggie is four years old and can’t wait to join her big sister and mom at Springer in another year.

    I look forward to meeting you and learning more about everyone who makes Shannon such a great school.
