Hello My Name Is...

Matt Shields

I am so excited for the opportunity to be a part of the Viking community.

My goal every year is to inspire my class to grow academically, socially, and to become become the best citizens they can be. 

I will be teaching History and English and am passionate about both subjects. I was a Social Studies major at Pittsburg State University, where I earned a bachelors degree in 2007 and a masters degree in 2018. 

I have been married to my wife, Jene' for 11 years. We have 2 sons. Our oldest son, Cooper, is 4, and our youngest son, Rory, will turn 2 in the middle of August. My family is a very important part of my life and I do my best to make them the top priority in all that I do. 

I do my best to ensure that every student who enters my room has a positive experience, and I believe that communication is the most intricate detail in achieving this goal. My door is always open and my phone is usually on. I look forward to working with you all soon. I am proud to me a Viking!

Hard Work Pays Off.
