Shannon Moore
Hi! My name is Shannon Moore and I am a School Counselor at Heritage E-Stem Magnet School. I began my school counseling career in 2012 and joined the Heritage team in 2017. I hold a bachelor’s degree in psychology from The College of Saint Benedict/St. John’s University and a Master’s Degree in School Counseling from St. Cloud State University. My family and I live in the Twin Cities and we love to spend time at the cabin. I enjoy reading good books and connecting with family and friends.

iPAD Tips: 
Parents, know if your student has personal email accounts. Check on these with your student on a regular basis. Make sure you look in their "TRASH". Their school email account is NOT a personal email account. It is to be used only for educational purposes.

The iPad should only be used in a common area of the house, not in a student's bedroom. It should be an area where people will be walking through or sitting with the student so you can see they are using it only for school work. At night it is best if the iPad is stored or set up to "charge" in a common area, or put it in your bedroom at night. This way your student is not tempted to use it improperly at night.

Explore Test: The EXPLORE Test is ACT's 8th grade version which includes a projection of how your student would do on the ACT college entrance exam.
