About Miss Sheehan
My name is Anne Sheehan and I am the AIG teacher here at Wilburn. This will be my 14th year of teaching in the elementary grades. I couldn't be more excited about my role as the AIG teacher at Wilburn. Before I became an AIG teacher I taught second, third, and fifth grade. I started my journey as a teacher at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. There I earned my undergraduate degree in Elementary Education. A few years later I decided to go back and earn my master's degree at Wingate University. A few years later I began working in a classroom where the AIG students were clustered and it was simply amazing. It inspired me to learn more about gifted education. And so, I went back to UNCC to study about gifted learners and earn my AIG certification in grades K-12. My ultimate career goal is to earn my doctorate in Gifted Education. You could definitely describe me as a lifelong learner!
I come from a big family. There are 6 kids and 2 of the most amazing parents in my family. My family is spread around the country. We love meeting up in Washington and NYC for fun family adventures. In my free time I enjoy reading, cooking, running, exploring the North Carolina Museum of Art. One of my favorite ways to spend my time away from school is exploring the Eno River basin in Durham with my dog Jack.
As the AIG teacher I have many goals for myself and my students. My most important goal is to provide our AIG students with the best support possible as they move through elementary school. I hope to foster and build independent, strong-willed, and unique lifelong learners.
