About Mr. Shields
Dear Parent or Guardian,
Welcome to the 2013-2014 school year at Fisher Elementary. This year I will be your child’s fourth grade teacher, and I am excited about the year ahead. This is my sixth year at Fisher and my second in the fourth grade. At Fisher, I have taught second and fifth. Prior to Fisher, I taught 6th grade science at Natalia Junior High.
We begin by building a solid foundation for success, a blueprint for optimal achievement in every area of a students' life, by enhancing "self": self-esteem, self-confidence, self-awareness, self-motivation and self-discipline and strengthening their character. A person’s self-image has complete control over their ability to achieve (or fail to achieve) any specific goal. A positive self-image is the key to living without limits. I aim to give each student that key component to success. I will provide opportunities for young people to make positive choices, gain self-confidence, and learn skills that are critical for their development. The ultimate goal is to allow a student to reach his or her potential in an atmosphere of maximum learning and fun. This is the true measure of success. The teachings at Fisher will take you and your “self” to the next level of learning, exploration and awareness.
