Third Grade

Meet our faculty.

Mission

As third grade teachers we will provide our students an academically-challenging environment.  We believe that all third-grade students can come to school each day prepared to learn.  All students should be responsible for their actions, be resourceful learners, and be respectful of adults and peers.

My name is Shanyn Foster and I am so excited to join the Harmony family! I was born in Minnesota but have lived in Florida and Alaska. I have two children, Abigail, who is 11 and Brian, Jr., who is 7. I love watching football, cooking, and spending time with my family. My weekends are spent at the soccer fields, church, and watching my beloved Minnesota Vikings! I earned my bachelor's at the University of North Georgia. I hold endorsements in Reading and ESOL. I am currently working to earn a Master's degree in Reading and Literacy from Walden University. Everyday as a teacher at Harmony is privilege and I look forward to making many memories in the 3rd grade!

I was born and raised in south Louisiana, in the area known as "Acadiana/Cajun Country" and attended Southeastern Louisiana University. My certification areas are in Early Childhood Education (P-3) and Middle Grades Education (4-8), with concentrations in math, science, social science and language arts. I have 17 years of teaching experience in the states of Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and Georgia. This is my 6th year at Harmony and my 17th year of teaching.

I enjoy traveling and spending time with my family. I am very fortunate to teach here at Harmony and I am looking forward to an awesome year!Thank you for sharing your children with me!

Kathy Mazurek

I am looking forward to my return to the classroom and being a part of the 3rd grade team. I hope to instill in my students a love of learning; about themselves, others, and curriculum. But most importantly I want them to stretch themselves to higher levels and aspire to goals that will help in this endeavor. I have been helping in many classrooms for the past few years, working with EL’s, Focus and EIP students across all grade levels. I am excited to have my own little classroom, where I can explore with my students all the wonders of 3rd grade.

Outside of school I am married to my best friend Alex, together for 37 years, two children Matt (36) and Jenny (33) and our dog Madison. Our family of five has grown to seven with the addition of Jenny’s husband Craig and Matt’s girlfriend Jamie. We are proud grandparents to 3 dogs: Flo, Maggie, and Blaze. Hobbies include sailing, reading and playing games.

Feel free to come and visit our classroom and watch learning in progress!
