Amy Herron

Amy Herron is originally from Riverside, California. She received her Bachelor of Arts degree from California State University, Fullerton, a long time ago. She recently completed my Master’s in Elementary Teaching in November 2019, and is currently working on her NAMC Montessori diploma and enjoying it! Amy loves learning, especially from her students. I can’t imagine a more fulfilling job than helping to educate young minds. She has been a long term substitute for several grades over the last couple of years, also a homeschool teacher, a soccer coach, and dance instructor, and everything that comes with being a mother. Amy has been married for 23 years to a wonderful scientist. They have five children, three girls and two boys. When she’s not teaching, she loves reading, baking, and gardening, especially landscape design.

Shanna Bowles

Lead Teacher

Shanna Bowles

Ms. Shanna has wanted to be a teacher since she was in 6th grade. She had so many inspiring educators growing up, she wanted to do the same thing for future generations. Ms. Shanna attended Brigham Young University in Idaho and received her bachelor's degree in Elementary Education. She taught for two years in a public tradition school as a 6th grade teacher in Idaho Falls, and then moved to Utah to discover her love for Montessori education.  She taught for two years at a Montessori school in upper elementary and then took a year off to be a mom to her first daughter. She then returned to teaching at another traditional school as a 5th grade teacher, but quickly discovered that the Montessori method is her preferred way of teaching. 
Ms. Shanna loves arts and crafts, dancing, swimming, reading, kickboxing, and spending time with her family. She is so excited to start her new adventure at Ignite Entrepreneurship Academy!
