About Me

Mr. Ian Shih is thrilled to join the 8th grade team this year to teach Civics & Economics. Although this is Mr. Shih's first year formally teaching at ACMS, he previously student-taught, substituted, and tutored here. Raised in the suburbs of Northern Virginia (at a time when the area could still be considered quaint!), Mr. Shih grew up in the shadow of Washington D.C. marveling over the monuments, museums, and various federal buildings. It is from those early experiences that Mr. Shih developed his lifelong passion for civics, politics, diplomacy, economics, and history.

Mr. Shih just earned his Masters of Education in Reading, Literacy, and Learning from Longwood University earlier this year (Go Lancers!), and is eligible to become licensed as a Reading Specialist after teaching for three more years. Mr. Shih obtained his Bachelor of Arts in History in 2011, also from Longwood University. Outside of school, Mr. Shih enjoys cooking, reading, traveling, obsessing over politics and current events, and chasing after his rambunctious cat that he is raising together with his girlfriend.
