Teaching is a labor of love for most who do it. For Hubbard-Radcliffe’s Shannon Smuck, it’s become much, much more.
Smuck, 40, was diagnosed with glioblastoma (brain cancer) last April. She said it’s a rare disease for a woman her age. She went through radiation in May and June, and took chemotherapy pills for seven months. Through it all, minus the summer months, she has been teaching.
