Teacher Bio

About Mrs. Sheila McLeish:

I remember as a little girl playing school with my sisters, always wanting to be the teacher!  At age 10, I decided I was going to teach just like my 4th grade teacher. It was also around this age I heard, believed, and put my faith in Jesus Christ after the salvation message was taught at a Bible camp I attended.

To fulfill my dream, I pursued an elementary education degree. It was during this time, while student teaching in a 6th grade classroom, I found my passions to teach upper elementary. But God had a very unique path for me, much different than the one I had planned. Over the next many years, many jobs and opportunities working with children, He was preparing me to be the teacher I am today.

My love for teaching was reignited when I started at FBCS as a teacher aide and substitute. Now as 6th grade teacher, I am confident the Lord has me here not only to teach academics, but to teach my students about who God is and what He has done for them and it was done in His time, not mine.

Isaiah 58:8-9

For my thoughts are not your thoughts,
    neither are your ways my ways, declares the Lord.
For as the heavens are higher than the earth,
    so are my ways higher than your ways
    and my thoughts than your thoughts.

The Lord led me to the perfect position in His perfect time.
