Michele Shirah ’05

Fourth Grade Homeroom

Michele is a fourth grade homeroom teacher. She’s worked in elementary education her entire career, including two years of art education, at nearby AIMS schools. In 2014 she was named the Lower School Teacher of the Year at Beth Tfiloh Dahan Community School.

“My teaching style and philosophy are directly linked to the education I received at The Park School, and I, too, teach through a Dewey-inspired progressive approach. I believe the most central element of education is the need to address the individual child and my goal is to prepare them for the world that awaits them.”

Michele coaches Lower School field hockey. She enjoys art, reading, travel, and sports. 

She holds a B.A. in Studio Art with a minor in Family Studies from James Madison University, and an M.Ed. in Early Childhood Education from Towson University.
