Meet Our Director


Shannon McGee

Shannon McGee comes to us with over 25 years of experience in overseeing and directing preschools and young children's programming. Early childhood education is her passion, she says, and she has been fortunate to share that passion with teachers and students across the North Dallas area. 

WIth a Bachelor of Science degree in Child Development and a Master of Arts in Christian Education, Shannon is equipped with the tools she needs to lead our preschool in providing the best in age-appropriate learning in a nurturing Christian environment. In addition to her degrees, Shannon has been affiliated with the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) and the Texas Baptist Church Weekday Education Association. 

For the past 19 years, Shannon has served as the Weekday Preschool Director at Park Cities Baptist Church in Dallas. There she supervised five preschool programs run by a faculty of forty. She was responsible for all personnel decisions, training, coaching, and parental involvement. She also was the lead in the administration of the school. Under her leadership, enrollment increased by 65% and she was able to maintain a nearly full roster of students. Parents were encouraged to take an active part in the school through parent-teacher conferences, newsletter appeals, and opportunities to serve on various committees.

Shannon is a native Texan who grew up in Richardson. She has an older brother, sister, and two nephews. She loves playing tennis, jewelry making, and being with her family.
