Shonja Evans grew up in the small town of Sapulpa, in Northeastern Oklahoma. She is a 1995 graduate and proud supporter of The Oklahoma State University Cowboys with a degree in Animal Science and Biotechnology.
Mrs. Evans is currently in her 21st year of teaching in Texas. This is her 8th year at Bland High School. She is currently teaching Forensic Science, Human Anatomy & Physiology, Biology, and is also serving as Student Council Sponsor and Freshman class Sponsor.
I have been married to my amazing husband, Dustin, for over 25 years now.
I have two children. My daughter, Ashleigh graduated from Oklahoma State University and is now attending Mizzou’s School of Veterinary Medicine. My son, Austin is attending Sam Houston State University and will graduate with a business degree in one more year. Both of my kids graduated from Bland High School, therefore I take a lot of pride in the education, programs, and the traditions that they experienced here.
I believe that the future of the world is in my classroom today; a future with the potential to become positive role models for future generations and responsible contributing members of society. I think that every student has the potential for success. I love how each year provides me with a great ability to influence students’ lives and with opportunities to improve tomorrow. I like to recognize each student for something positive and encourage each student to see their strengths, build better self-esteem, and improve their skills. I urge students to utilize their imagination, ingenuity, and curiosity to explore and discover whatever it is that they wish to become. I want learning to be fun, exciting, and to awaken my students’ desire to succeed and to give them the confidence that they can overcome challenges.
