Ceil Shanahan, MS
Licensed Educator | Special Needs Strategist
My Education and Experience
I received a BA in Elementary Education and Intellectual Disabilities from Flagler College, as well as a MS in Special education from the University of North Florida. In my 35 years as an exceptional student educator, I was blessed to pilot both the pre-kindergarten developmentally delayed and autistic programs for St. John’s County. In addition to completing my ASD endorsement, I co-developed and taught this endorsement at the county level.
I am experienced in working with extremely diverse populations of students and consider my strengths to be developing relationships, untangling unproductive behavioral challenges and providing practical strategies to alleviate concerns in varying environments. My company, Peaced Together, LLC is dedicated to “Mending life skills today for a productive life tomorrow.”
I Believe In…
- Relationship-based connections between children and adults designed to promote independence, responsibility and a growth mindset.
- A positive, strength-centered approach towards strategizing practical solutions to challenges occurring in the home, school and community.
- Maximizing potential while respecting, understanding and embracing diversity.
- Open communication as a means to generalizing skills, concepts and behaviors into varying environments.
