About Me

Hello! My name is Shannon Dughetti and I am so excited to be your child's 3rd grade teacher! Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year! We are going to do so many fun things this year, and of course, learn a lot. I can't wait for all the memories we will make in 3rd grade!





Quick Facts

Years Teaching:

I started teaching in 2001 and taught 4th grade for 7 years.  I took some time off from teaching full time while my kids were young. During that time, I continued to work as a substitute teacher and tutor.  In 2018 and 2019 I was so lucky to have the opportunity to be the long term substitute in two 3rd grade classrooms.  This is when I absolutely fell in love with 3rd grade! There is no other place I would rather be than here at Nelson Prairie teaching 3rd grade!



My husband Neil and I have been married for 19 years and live in Mokena with our two daughters, Ava (13) and Claire (10).  Ava and Claire are both students in NLSD 122 and my husband is also a teacher.  We also have a cute, litte, Boston Terrier mix named Sadie.


In My Free Time:

In my free time I love spending time with my family.  We love to travel, get outdoors, play games and watch movies together.  Both my girls are involved in sports, so we spend a lot of time together at soccer games, and at cross country and track meets.  I also enjoy photography and love to shop!
