On top of that, she seems to be the reserved, shy type. Since I don't think I'm on her radar quite yet, I was wondering how I could approach her without looking like a creep or making a fool out of myself.
I have three classes with her.

well that happened to me when I was in seventh grade I was waiting to be dismissed to go and get to my bus, and this guy who i hardly even knew but he was popular saw me sitting at a table and drawing a lamp so he came over to me and was like "Hey, What ya doing" basically my point is just talk to her and tell her its okay to be looking down when you are talking to her because then it takes some of the pressure away

Keep it simple at first, and build a little more later. IE approach her with a simple 'hello' one day, then maybe the next, approach her and ask her how her day is going, and again the third day, with maybe a little more.
