    University of North Texas
    My name is Shelly Garza and I teach MYP Language and Literature at the Hongqiao campus. I was raised a "third culture kid” in Ethiopia, Italy and Indonesia, and I believe it provided me with the world citizenship values I now hold dear. I studied English at the University of North Texas and Education at the University of Texas Pan American. After five years working in public schools in the U.S., my daughter and I travelled to Cameroon, where I taught a variety of subjects for three years. We then moved to Russia, where I taught middle school Humanities for four years, and then to the United Arab Emirates, where I taught grade 7 English and Social Studies for six years. I am thrilled to now call my home Shanghai and to be part of the wonderful SCIS community.
