  • Hello, all! As you know, I’m Monica Shields.   I currently teach second grade at June Nelson Elementary School.  This is my fourth year teaching in the Northwest Arctic Borough School District.  Overall, I have been a teacher for twelve years.  My family and I moved here from Arkansas.  My husband, Sonny, is a school counselor and serves as counselor in Kotzebue, Noatak, and Buckland.  We also have a son that attends JNES. 

    The 2020-2021 school year will be beginning on Wednesday, August 20, 2020.  I would like to thank you, parents and students, in advance for being patient with me as we manage a new adventure in students learning in different ways.  As a teacher, I am preparing for an exciting year!
