Ms. Shaughnessy


Hello! My name is Maggie Shaughnessy. I am the librarian at Alturas Elementary. I grew up here in the Wood River Valley and graduated from Wood River High School.  I live in Bellevue with my husband and our dogs. I love to swim in the river, hike, ride my bike, travel and of course, read!

I started my career teaching Kindergarten at Bellevue Elementary School. When Woodside Elementary opened, I became a reading specialist, and now at Alturas, I have my dream job as the librarian at Alturas Elementary. 

I also love to learn and seem to keep going back to school. My educational degrees include:

B.A. in Environmental Studies from the University of California in Santa Barbara

B.A. in Elementary Education with a K-12 Literacy Endorsement from Boise State University

School Library Media Endorsement, Montana State University

Master's in Library Science (MLS) from Emporia State University.  

I love helping kids learn how to read and now I get to help them find books, books, and more books! Thank you for reading my biography, please feel free to contact me anytime.
