Shannon Dulaney had already spent extensive time in education before joining the faculty at the McKay School. She worked as the director of special education in Iron County for five years and has been helping children with special needs for more than 13 years.
Dulaney earned her EdD from Utah State University in December 2009, where she focused her research on at-risk children, response to intervention (RTI), and professional learning communities (PLCs). She joined the Department of Educational Leadership and Foundations in August.
Dulaney was born and raised in Southern California, where she met and married her husband. They are the parents of four children—three boys and a girl. Dulaney and her family moved to Cedar City, Utah in 1997, where she worked in the office of youth and custody.
An avid musician, Dulaney has taught piano lessons for 25 years. She loves to play, and especially favors works by Chopin and Rachmaninov. “I have a little trouble with Rachmaninov,” she shared. “He had such big hands, and his music requires these huge stretches, but I love playing his music anyway.”
Dulaney looks forward to working with her colleagues at the McKay School and teaching graduate students in her department.
