Degrees and Certifications:
I'm Super Shields, but my secret identity is Ms. Shields, your AP Seminar teacher at Carnegie Vangaurd this 2019-20 school year. My super power is teaching and overall awesomeness.
A few things about me, I am a proud native Houstonian and third generation teacher. I am a graduate of Incarnate Word Academy as well as Houston Baptist University where I received dual bachelor degrees in Political Science and English. Currently, I am pursuing a Master of Fine Arts degree in Creative Writing from University Texas El Paso. I am a 10+ year veteran of HISD, documented master teacher and project-based learning sifu.
I am a motivated content specialist with a commitment to the achievement and successes of others. Skilled in the design of student-centered and project-based learning that addresses the diverse needs and backgrounds found in everyday life.
In my spare time, Super Shields, is an avid traveler and has been to all seven continents. "I survived Antarctica!" I'm a novice but determined baker, a fan of Broadway shows and "The Golden Girls". Even though, I maintain an active and full life, I always makes time to read and write (I use Amazon and Kindle store A LOT).
I look forward to working with my students and their families to make sure this year is full of growth and engagement.
