MEET THE FOUNDER
My name is Shannon Ali. I am a wife, mother of 3, teacher, and speech-language pathologist. I know first hand what it's like to manage multiple schedules. It can be overwhelming to be so busy and feel like you aren't giving your family the best. There seems to never be enough time to get everything done. When you enroll your child in Daytime Playtime classes, I teach you how to work with your child using practical strategies that involve daily activities and play. It's much easier than you may think! God put Daytime Playtime on my heart a long time ago, and I finally decided to step out on faith and pursue my purpose and passion.
I graduated summa cum laude with my Bachelor's degree from Louisiana Tech University. I also received my Master's degree in speech language pathology and worked as a pediatric speech therapist at Melanie Massey Physical Therapy. I truly believe reading is power. Early intervention has been proven to be highly effective. I taught my 3 year old son to read, and he recently tested into the gifted prek program. I received my alternative certification in health & physical education and taught dance at Green Oaks Performing Arts Academy for 5 years. I also worked as a dance teacher at Susan's Studio of Dance & Fitness in Haughton, LA. I currently work at Woodlawn Leadership Academy. My husband Jelani and I have three children: Isaiah (4), Ezekiel (2), and Naomi (1). I enjoy serving the youth at my church and spending time with family.
