Mrs. Shannon Davis

It is my pleasure to be your principal for the upcoming 2023/2024 school year. This marks my 17th year with Jackson-Madison County Schools. I have served as a 1st and 2nd grade teacher at Nova Elementary for 4 years, as a 2nd and 3rd grade teacher at Thelma Barker Elementary for 8 years, Academic Coordinator for 2 years at JCM Early College High, and an Assistant Principal at JCM Early College High for 2 years. I also work as an adjunct faculty member for Jackson State Community College (ground and online) and Tennessee State University (online). I am excited about serving as principal at the AWESOME Alexander Elementary School. 

I am a 1992 graduate of Haywood High in Brownsville, TN. My educational background includes a Bachelor of Science from Middle Tennessee State University (1997), a Master of Education from Freed Hardeman University(2006), and most recently a Master in Instructional Leadership with a concentration in Administration and Supervision(2020).  
I have served at the state level as a 2017/2018 Score Fellow and 2nd grade state testing item reviewer. I have also been a lead teacher and mentor to rising educators at University of Memphis, Freed Hardeman, and Union University. I have worked as the Response to Intervention Lead, Literacy Lead, Testing Coordinator, Trauma Informed Representative, and Jackson State Community College Liaison. 
I am a strong advocate for students to be successful. I strive every day to make sure ALL students from Pre-K to college have exactly what they need to be successful and understand the resources that are available for them to pursue their goals. 

My husband, Dr. Patrick Davis Sr. is a product of Jackson-Madison County Schools and is a proud alumnus of Alexander Elementary School. He is the Vice President of Operations at Tennessee College of Applied Technology - Dickson. I have 2 children, Imani (Weekend News Anchor for KAIT Region 8 News) and Patrick Davis Jr. (Criminal Justice Major at UT Martin). My goal is to pour into your children as I have poured into my own and show them what the world has to offer.
