Shannon Pylant, MS — Instructor

Shannon Pylant is a 6th grade science teacher in Winston-Salem, NC.  She has a Masters of Science in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology from Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center and a Bachelor of Science in Biology with Minors in Chemistry and Education from Belmont Abbey College. Prior to teaching, Shannon worked as a cancer research scientist and as an account representative for a global laboratory supply company.  Since 2015, Shannon has supplemented her time in the classroom with developing and teaching science afternoon academies and summer camps for elementary aged scientists. Shannon has presented her classroom curriculum at national and regional conferences, including the National Science Teachers Association Conference, the North Carolina Science Teacher Association Conference, and the North Carolina Association for Independent Schools Conference.  

Shannon is energized by her work with young adults and enjoys the ability to foster relationships with budding scientists across all grade levels through collaborative projects.  She believes that scientists should be encouraged to constantly question, dig deeper into topics that are of interest to them, and make connections to other disciplines to further develop their explanations. Recently, she has enjoyed incorporating escape style activities into her laboratory activities where her scientists unlock learning while solving mysteries.
