Miss McNeilly

Hello, my name is Miss McNeilly. I graduated from Appalachian State University with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Healthcare Management. Soon after I started my career in healthcare, I decided I wanted to fulfill my childhood dream of becoming a Teacher. I graduated from UNC-Charlotte in May 2021 with a Certificate in Teaching and this will be my 3rd year teaching 5th grade. Outside of school, I love spending time with family and friends, as well as traveling. I am so excited to be teaching another year in 5th grade at Brookside Elementary. We are going to have a great year!!

Ms. Wall

Hi, my name is Shannon H. Wall and I am proud to be a part of Brookside Elementary School.  I graduated from Appalachian State University with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Elementary Education, K-6. I began my teaching career in Wake County prior to joining the 5th grade team at Brookside. I have four wonderful children and two grandsons, who made me a Nana. I believe that a wise teacher makes learning a joy. As a teacher, I am committed to creating a safe learning environment in my classroom that nurtures and encourages the growth and development of all students. I love teaching 5th grade and it is a blessing to be a bulldog.
