About Marcie

Marcie Shea is a wife, mom, Henrico educator, and Richmond native who believes great education comes from great teachers.

Marcie has experience as a teacher and parent in the Tuckahoe district. With a bachelor’s degree in physics and a masters of education in science curriculum and instruction, she taught Advanced Placement, honors, and college prep physics at Freeman High School and is currently a Pemberton Elementary School parent.

Since stepping away from the full-time high school classroom to focus on raising her family, Marcie continues to invest in Henrico schools through coaching new physics teachers, working one-on-one with struggling high school students, serving on the PTA, and volunteering teaching STEM for elementary students.

She is passionate about supporting teachers, meeting all students where they are, and educating the whole child. Her perspective from being in the trenches of teaching, and now in the trenches as a parent, gives her a unique understanding of what educational policy looks like from the ground level up.
