Personal Information:
Helllo, My name is Shannon and I live in Southern Illinois. I have been happily married for over 7 years now. We have a daughter together, Kirstin, who is 6. I also have a son from a previous relationship, Dalton who will be 17 in March. I teach reading at an elementary school. I also coordinate the Title I grants for our district and just recently became president of our school union. I am very busy and stressed which is not helpful for my weight loss since I am a stress eater, but I will take it one day at a time!!
