Mrs. Shanna Romano

Fellow Friends,

So honored to be teaching at James W. Smith Family Literacy Preschool Program. I have 22 years teaching experience and glad to call Craven County Schools home.  My husband, of 27 years, is a retired US Marine Master Sergeant where his active duty career has taken our family all over the world allowing me to teach within multiple school districts, private schools, overseas international schools and childcare classrooms.  I have two beautiful daughters whose academic, athletic and social calendars keep us very busy.  Away from school, I enjoy traveling, days at the campground and spending time with family and friends. As an educator, I want to leave my students with the love of learning.  I am glad to be working with a great team of educators, staff and families here at James. W. Smith Family Literacy Preschool Program!
