Mr. Shane Flaar
This year will be my 16th year of teaching, and believe it or not, all sixteen years have been at Fulton Junior High. I grew up in Galesburg, Illinois (small central Illinois town located north of Peoria), and after graduating high school in 1998, I went to Monmouth College where I earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Elementary Education (with a middle school endorsement) in 2002. My wife, Nicole, is fellow District 90 employee; she is a social worker at Marie Schaefer and E.K. elementary schools, and she is also Fulton’s varsity volleyball coach. My two boys, Ryan (almost 3 years old) and Owen (15 months) keep me busy when I’m not coaching Fulton cross country in the fall or OTHS baseball in the spring. Favorites of mine include Cardinals baseball, Seinfeld re-runs, yard work, running (when I have time), good pizza, and good coffee.
