Shane Slobada


My name is Shane Slobada and I am a fourth grade math, science, and social studies teacher at East Union Intermediate Center.  I have taught at Deer Lakes since 2003.  Prior to Deer Lakes, I graduated from Slippery Rock University with a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education.
I became a teacher because I love to work with children, and help them grow as individuals.  My goal is not only to help them learn, but to show them how to be successful in life.  I believe my personality allows me to be a positive role model to the children, and my sense of humor shows them not to take things too seriously in life.

Joined Deer Lakes:

I did my student teaching at Deer Lakes during the fall semester of 2001.  I then began subbing at Deer Lakes in 2002, before getting hired as a kindergarten teacher in 2003. 


I graduated from Slippery Rock University in 2001 with a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education (Grades k-6).  I  have been a teacher at Deer Lakes for more than 17 years.  I have taught fourth grade for all but 3 of those years.
