She received a M.Ed. in Reading Curriculum Development and Instruction from Boston College and a B.S. in Education from Framingham State College. Shauna has collaborated with curriculum coordinators, administrators and special educators to design and implement various research-based curriculum initiatives at both a school-wide and district-wide level.
