Shadieh is currently a part-time instructor at Folsom Lake, Sierra College, and American River College. She has received her M.A. in Art History from UC Davis, with the focus on European Renaissance and Baroque, particularly with regards to the Middle Eastern influence in the European art of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries; she completed her B.A. at California State University in Sacramento majoring in 2 dimensional studio arts.

Shadieh has been teaching since 1999; among the courses she has taught are: Art Appreciation, Art of the World Cultures, Asian Art, and Art History of the Western World from the prehistoric to modern times, Women in Art History, Native American Art, African Art and Art of the Americas. She has also developed and authored a new course for Sierra College and Los Rios Community College District called Introduction to Islamic Art, which she has been teaching at Sierra since 2002 both on ground and online as well as American River since 2007.

She has authored a textbook for this class by the same title, second edition of which was released in spring 2010. Shadieh's most recent research interest has been investigating the issues of power and art particularly in religious art as they pertain to the three Abrahamic religions. In spring 2010 she was invited to present a paper at Oxford University. Her paper's title: Abrahamic Religions: The Necessity of a New Perspective was on the applicability of art historical critical methods in the critical examination of religious texts and their interpretations in order to seek a different viewpoint on key issues of concern within monotheism.
