Ms. Shirley Poon


I am the Learning Support teacher for grades K-1 at Tilden Elementary Center. This is my 5th year at Tilden and I am so thrilled to be working with the wonderful students, faculty, and staff here!

A little bit about myself... I grew up in Reading, PA and graduated from Syracuse University with a Bachelor's degree in Inclusive Elementary & Special Education. After graduating, I worked as a paraprofessional for one year and then as a first grade teacher for another year. I have always loved working with children and hope to encourage them to become life-long learners! In my free time, I love to travel to new places and spend time with family and friends.

Feel free to explore the fun and free educational resources I have listed under "Useful Resources" or to contact me with any questions or concerns!
