Ms. Shannon Cummings




My name is Shannon Cummings! I am currently the principal of Gardner Elementary School in Detroit, Michigan and have been the school’s leader for the past five years. I attended Redford High School, which was a Detroit Public Schools school. Detroit Public Schools is now the Detroit Public Schools Community District (DPSCD). I have been a resident of Michigan all my life and attended Marygrove College for my undergrad degree in Elementary Education and University of Detroit, Mercy for my master’s degree in Educational Leadership. I am currently working on a doctoral degree from Oakland University and I hope to have that degree completed by the end of 2024. I love being a principal and enjoy working with students to help them achieve their academic goals.
