Hello! My name is Stacy Shields and I am blessed to call Schiff my home! I have been teaching for 5 years and this is my 3rd year to teach 2nd grade at Jan Schiff. I am excited to begin the new school year and looking forward to an "adventurous" year with your student!
As for my background, I hold a Bachelor's degree in Business Administration from the University of Houston - Clear Lake. I worked in various business sectors before following my passion for teaching! In 2017 I completed my alternative certification and haven't looked back since. When away from the classroom, I enjoy spending time with my family, watching my son play baseball, cooking, and engaging in spontaneous adventures. I live here in Sienna with my husband Jason of 17 years and our 14-year old amazing son Logan who attends Ronald Thornton Middle School.
As for my classroom, it is important that we are a community who care, trust, respect, and collaborate together. I believe in building relationships, classroom managmenet, structure, student ownership, and making learning fun each and every day! I also believe that a two-way street of communication is key to the parent-teacher relationship. I encourage parents to contact me with questions or concerns and I will openly communicate on a regular basis through our 2nd grade newsletter, weekly emails, and one-to-one emails, as needed.
I’m excited to spend the next year learning and growing with you and your family! It’s going to be a fun year where...LEARNING IS AN ADVENTURE - CAMPING STYLE!
