My name is Shannan Harrah. I have been with PSP CISD since August of 2010. I married my high school sweetheart, West Texas High Alumnus Les Harrah. We then had two of the most amazing kids, Kayla and Dalton. Kayla graduated from WTHS in 2017, WTAMU in 2020 and is now attends in the Masters of Science of Athletic Training at Tarleton. Dalton graduated from WTHS in 2020 and is currently attending Texas State Technical College and is slated to graduate in May of 2022.
After 15 years in the banking industry and at the age of 40, I went back to school and here I am. Never, never, ever give up on your dreams. Although it was one of the hardest things I did, next to my family it is one of my proudest accomplishments. All I want is to make a difference in a kid’s life.
In August of 2010 I helped to start the ACE Program as II was also attending college. I graduated from Lamar University in December of 2013 and completed an alternative Teaching Certification program. After a few more years in ACE and then 2 years as the High School Registrar, I am excited to be teaching English I, Nutrition, and Personal Family Development.
Don’t ever doubt that you can do whatever you set your mind to do!
I’m also the Varsity Cheer Sponsor. Girls are full of drama and noise and laughter and obnoxiousness, but mostly, girls are full of a sense of family and love. They hate each other one minute and love each other the next. It’s a rollercoaster ride much of the time but I love all of the girls I’ve had on my squads. Each one teaches me a little something about myself and most of the time, we have a lot of fun.
