Mrs. Paula Shea
Hello! I'm Mrs. Shea (pronounced like "Shay"), and I teach 8th and 9th Grade Algebra. I am also certified in English as a Second Language and especially enjoy working with multilingual students. My own goal is to eventually be fluent in at least 4 languages (I am striving to continue improving my Spanish and French, and also working on learning Arabic)
In previous years in the Muhlenberg School District I have taught Precalculus (10th-12th grade), Consumer Math (12th grade), Algebra/Geometry (10th grade), in addition to the 8th and 9th grade math which I teach now.
Teaching is everything to me, and I'm very dedicated to helping every student succeed. I encourage students to develop a growth mindset and recognize that EVERYONE can do math, and everyone can learn and improve. I'm passionate about learning new languages and especially love working with students who are emergent bilinguals or multi-lingual.
Please contact me anytime if you have questions or concerns.
