In addition to her degrees, Shannon has been affiliated with the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) and the Texas Baptist Church Weekday Education Association.

She was responsible for all personnel decisions, training, coaching, and parental involvement. She also was the lead in the administration of the school. Under her leadership, enrollment increased by 65% and she was able to maintain a nearly full roster of students. Parents were encouraged to take an active part in the school through parent-teacher conferences, newsletter appeals, and opportunities to serve on various boards and committees.
