Mr. Kent Sheffield
Welcome parents and students to Fort Bend ISD reimagined and welcome to Fort Settlement! I am happy to begin my 16th year in FBISD and my 10th year at Fort Settlement teaching 8th Grade ELA.
In addition to teaching ELA, I also serve with Ms. Michelle Liaw as a co-advisor to the National Junior Honor Society (NJHS). NJHS is a service organization for 8th grade students who have demonstrated the five pillars of NJHS during their middle school years: Scholarship, Leadership, Service, Citizenship, and Character. Students are invited to apply for membership during the spring of their 7th grade year, and those students who are inducted will serve during their 8th grade year.
I graduated from Baylor University with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in English and later received a Master's Degree in Educational Administration and Supervision from The University of Houston - Victoria. I now have two grown daughters who have both gradutated from college and are now working full time. I have been married to my wife for over 27 years and have lived in Sugar Land all of these years. I am very passionate about animals and rescuing animals that need a home! We currently have 3 rescue pets-- one terrier mix and three loveable cats.
Teaching Philosophy: I believe all students can learn and succeed when equipped with proper resources, a supportive learning community, and a teacher who believes in their success. I look forward to another great year at The Fort!
