Mrs. Monica Shields
To my wonderful parents & fabulous students,
Hello, all! As you know, I’m Monica Shields. I currently teach second grade at June Nelson Elementary School. This is my third year teaching in the Northwest Arctic Borough School District. Overall, I have been a teacher for eleven years. My family and I moved here from Arkansas. My husband, Sonny, is a school counselor and serves Noatak, Kobuk, Buckland and Deering. We also have a son that attends JNES.
At this time, we are only able to have school through distance learning due to COVID19. I am so thankful to have such great parents and students that are eager to call into our teleconference each day. My goal is to stay in contact with all of you during this time. I will be flexible in working with you, as well as, our class’s support team. I understand everyone’s needs are different and I will do my best to find a way to meet the needs of each family.
