Ms. Shannon Beezhold and Priscilla Drenning


My name is Shannon Beezhold. In my free time I love spending time with my husband and two young kiddos! I have spent my whole career in D105; I began in 2008 at Hodgkins and moved over to Ideal in 2016.  I am looking forward to a wonderful year in fifth grade.  Go Panthers!

My name is Priscilla Drenning.  I began teaching in 1993 and have taught at 3/5 schools in the District.  I went to Hodgkins School as a student and then to Gurrie Middle School.  I am the Cheer Coach for 7/8 Grade at Gurrie and Elementary Cheer teams.  I am looking forward to a great year in fifth grade with your student!
