shire

 Hi!

I'm getting confused about the pronunciation of the word "SHIRE" (as in Berkshire).
According to dictionaries the central part of the word should be pronounced "aiə(r)", but I remember my teacher (who is English) pronouncing just a "i" as in the word "SHIP", for example. 

Any clarifications?
