Suffolk Times: Fast chat: Peconic Community School Gets New Teacher,October 3, 2015
Peconic Community School in Aquebogue has a new teacher who’s a familiar face to most of the staff.
Shannon Timoney is the private school’s new upper primary teacher, whose class includes students in grades 4 through 6. She previously taught for eight years at the Ross School in East Hampton.
Ms. Timoney’s mentor there was Alison Aldredge, Peconic Community School’s former kindergarten teacher and early childhood director. Ms. Aldredge died July 5 from an embolism related to Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, an illness from which she had suffered all her life.
“I was in awe of her,” Ms. Timoney recalled in an interview this week. “To have Alison show me how magical progressive education can be — I’m the luckiest person.”
