Mr. David Shanks
Hello! I am excited to come to Eagle High School and to teach for the first in my home state of IDAHO! I have been a teacher and administrator for the last 14 years in Colorado and Texas and have taught math from 6th-12th grades. I have also taught English, PE and coached multiple sports (but primarily basketball). I have also spent years training math teachers and running math tutoring programs.
I graduated from Kootenai High School in the panhandle and am used to living right on Lake Coeur d'Alene. My bachelor's degree is from University of Idaho and my master's is from what is now called Gateway Seminary.
In my free time and summers I love to travel and explore. My summers are filled up with camping, road trips and exploring new places. I have travelled through some of Europe, Asia and the Middle East as well as most of North America and 49 out of 50 states (Alaska is this years' goal!). You'll also often catch me watching college football and basketball.
My goal everyday is to have an engaging,enjoyable and meaningful time in class where every student finds their way to success!
