Board Member

Shannon Montague

Middle School Dean of Students, The Bryn Mawr School and Edcamp Board Member

A 2005 graduate of the University of Virginia with a degree in English, Shannon Montague's interest in education began at an early age, and she started her career teaching Middle School English in independent schools. After teaching in the Washington, DC metro area for six years and earning a masters degree in 2010 from Columbia University's Klingenstein Center for Independent School Leadership, Shannon moved to Baltimore in 2011 and currently serves as the Middle School Dean of Students and Drama Coordinator at The Bryn Mawr School.

Shannon has a strong interest in curriculum development, particularly focusing on integration of technology and faculty professional development. She enjoys working with independent school educators and leaders in shaping their teaching and personal learning, but nothing compares to the fun she has in her classroom teaching the next generation of 21st century leaders and learners. She enjoys working with adolescents with a focus in leadership growth and social-emotional development.

A strong believer in the powerful professional development that Edcamps can provide, Shannon has attended numerous Edcamps along the East Coast and is a co-founder of Edcamp Baltimore. She has also served as an organizer for Edcamp Independent Schools (IS), Edcamp Maryland, and Edcamp Arlington and joined the Edcamp board in 2015.

Shannon is a strong advocate of arts in education, as she is a performer herself in community theater productions in the mid-Atlantic and loves to sing.
