Mrs. Nikki Shields

This is my thirteeth year of teaching as an 8th grade ELA teacher, and my seventh year as a teacher in Wylie ISD! I graduated from Wylie High School in 2004 & always pictured myself coming back and teaching in my hometown. I love what I do and I love working with 8th grade students, so I am super excited to be here & work with you this year.

I know you are capable of more than you realize, so I will challenge you and sometimes it may be hard, but I promise to help you along the way. My goal this year is to help you see your potential and prepare you for your next step in life's journey: high school!
