Miss Alexandria Shields
Welcome to fourth grade!
My name is Alexandria Shields, and I am so thrilled to be a Wolf here at The Wheatlands this year! I attended Aurora University, Aurora, IL and received my bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education in 2020. I had the honor of being selected as an Illinois Golden Apple Scholar, through which I had many opportunities to work in schools within the Chicago Public Schools and also schools in rural Illinois. This program also gave me additional experiences working in schools of need around the state and schools that specialized in supporting students with special needs.
I attended elementary, junior high school, and high school here in School District 308. It feels great to be back in the community that gave me so many wonderful learning experiences. Becoming an educator was a lifelong dream of mine. I firmly believe in building strong relationships with my students and embracing all of their different backgrounds. I am so incredibly excited to work with all of my students and their families during this school year and I look forward to many more years to come as a Wolf!
