Shannon Symmes-Wagner - Teacher (Butterfly Room)

I’ve been in the early childhood field since August, 2002 when I got a job as an aide in a co-op in Novato while nanning for a family part time. I quickly realized that my passion was teaching and I began taking ECE classes while working at the co-op.  

My education background in Early Childhood Education was done through course work at a combination of courses through Santa Rosa Junior College and College Marin. I am a fully certified Early Childhood Educator since 2003 and want to continue my education through Napa valley college online courses as I’d like to be Director qualified someday. 

I live In Corte Madera with my three boy’s age: 11, 9, and 7. The boys go to the Cove Elementary. I just love the community that surrounds Kids on the Hill and other great local schools. 

I feel truly blessed to have found my true passion in life. Working with children makes my days happy! I always strive to have them know how supported, respected, and special they are. I believe that the early childhood years are a key to a loving foundation that builds happy and confident lifelong learners. What an honor to be to be a part of these pivotal early childhood years!
