Mrs. Shanna Coan


I received my Bachelor of Science degree in Biology and a Bachelor of Science in Education-Comprehensive Science from Athens State University. I am certified in General Science Education, which allows me to teach all of the science disciplines.  Finally, I hold a Master's degree in Educational Leadership from the University of Alabama in Birmingham.


This is my 22nd year in education.  I have taught in Lawrence County, Madison County, Decatur City and Hartselle City (since 2006).  In that time I have taught many different sciences at many different levels.  This year I will be teaching Biology and Forensic Science.


I am married to Brandon Coan, a product of the Lawrence Co. school system (don't hold that against him).  We have three children - Chase, Kennedy, and Carter - who are all part of the Hartselle family.  While we make our home in Decatur, we are thrilled to be a part of the Hartselle educational family.  I truly believe that you won't find a better system anywhere!
