Third grade is an exciting year when students are introduced to many new concepts while expanding the knowledge and skills gained in Kinder through 2nd grade. Students will be taught the overall writing process, multiplication, division, and how to write in cursive – just to name a few things

In addition to developing their skillset academically, students will be part of “Curious George’s Committed Community” where they are encouraged to respect each other, themselves, property, the environment, children, and the teachers. We strive to create an environment that is structured but not strict. We focus on organization and establishing routines while learning in a fun, interactive setting.

Hello. My name is Shannon Bellison. I have been teaching at OLG for 15 years now. I have three beautiful children. Brandon is 9 years old and the twins, Mason and Jonathan, are 6.  I enjoy spending time with my family. We love camping, going to amusement parks and attending A’s games. With any spare time I have, I love scrapbooking and making greeting cards too.

I attended CalState Hayward to earn my BA degree and then received a multiple subject teaching credential from CalState Teach through CalState Monterey Bay. Teaching is my passion.  In addition to being the third-grade teacher, I am one of the Vice Principals, a Student Council Moderators, and head the No Bully program. I am lucky to be able to work with students on all grade levels.

I feel so blessed to be working with the students at OLG.  OLG is truly my extended family.
