Discovering personal greatness in pre-school through grade 8 students - Burlington, Vermont

Megan Shields

Megan Shields grew up in multiple states across the east coast. She rode horses, played violin, and participated in theater, drama, and library councils as a student. Megan attended the University of Vermont as an Education major and also discovered a love of writing, American sign language, and Brazilian JiuJitsu. She graduated with a major in Secondary Education and a concentration in history. She now enjoys Vermont’s beautiful winter weather from the cozy indoors, and ventures out again once the snow has melted. Megan is the proud owner of two very spoiled birds, and one equally doted on German Shepard.
