• Hello grizzly families!

    I am beyond honored to be a part of your grizzly community and eager to work with all of you and our students alongside Dodson’s amazing staff! 

    My career in the WCSD started in 2000 at Dilworth middle school, where I found great joy as a resource teacher. It was during my time there that I decided to earn my master’s degree in administration. After 8 years at Dilworth, I moved into a 6th grade teaching position at Katherine Dunn elementary. I taught 6th grade at Dunn for three years before becoming the dean of students. I was the dean at Dunn for four years before becoming their assistant principal. During my career as an assistant principal, I have had the opportunity to work not only at Katherine Dunn elementary but Marvin Moss elementary and Sarah Winnemucca elementary. 

    My belief system is driven by the knowledge that every student can learn! 

    As your principal, I intend to build on trust through transparency. I am here to assist families and students in any way I can.

    I am excited about getting to know you and your child!   


    Together in education,

    Mrs. Shannon Ramacciotti
