Mr. Shane Flaar

This year will be my 18th year of teaching, and believe it or not, all eighteen 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 she is also Fulton’s varsity volleyball coach.  My two boys, Ryan (almost 5 years old) and Owen (3 years) 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.
