Hi!  My name is Natalie Shaner, and I am happily married with three children.  My husband, John is a teacher in Chatham County as well.  He teaches middle school at Bennett and Bonlee. I have a daughter named Carson who is a freshman at UNCW, a daughter named Riley who is in 11th  grade, and a son named Jackson who is in 7th grade.  I was born and raised in Chatham County and graduated from Northwood High School in 1990.  I knew from a young age that teaching was where my heart was.  I applied and received the NC Teaching Fellows Scholarship to Meredith College.  I graduated from Meredith in 1994 with a k-6 teaching certification.  Since that time, I have received my National Board Teaching Certification in 2010 and I also was recognized as Perry Harrison School’s Teacher of the Year in the spring of 2011.  I am so fortunate because I absolutely love my job!  I also enjoy camping, reading, and spending time with my family!
