Welcome to Shumway Leadership Academy kindergarten. My name is Donna Knapik and I am thrilled to be part of the Shumway team. I have a Bachelor of Science in Education and a Post Baccalaureate Teacher Certification in Early Childhood. I have worked in the Chandler School District for the past sixteen years beginning as a substitute teacher and later as an assistant at Hancock Elementary in their Community Preschool. This is my seventh year at Shumway and my first year as part of the kindergarten team.
My family has lived in Chandler for over 30 years. My son is a recent graduate of Arizona College Prep and is attending Embry-Riddle Universtiy in Prescott Arizona. In my spare time you will find me running around Chandler and caring for my three rescue cats!
